Our American Orange Liqueur is a spirit that we pot distill using two types of citrus peels: Cura√ßao (Citrus aurantium currassuviencis) and Bergamot (Citrus aurantium bergamia).
We steep both the Cura√ßao and the Bergamot in spirit, then carefully distill it in our small copper pot still, separating the clean citrus aromas from the bitterness that is inherent in citrus pith. We then rest the resulting distillate in glass carboys, which softens the flavors and relaxes the mouth feel.
The finished distillate is blended with cane sugar, Belgian candy sugar, and agave to give the spirit a relatively dry finish. The candy sugar gives it a bit of a confectioner's finish, giving legs to the spirit when put in a tasting glass.
When used in classic cocktails, the aroma of our American Orange Liqueur simply pops, lending a bright depth of flavor and aroma that you won't find in any other orange liqueur in the world.
