Bottled at 88 proof in a hand dipped 375 ml bottle, Balsam Amaro Americano Liqueur combines the world class botanical sourcing of Rodrick Markus of Rare Tea Cellar, the formulation and mixology expertise of HUM Spirits creator and founder Adam Seger CCP, and the alchemy of Master Distiller Barry Young of Boyd & Blair Potato Vodka«, the worlds highest rated vodka by the acclaimed spirits guru F. Paul Pacult.
The base spirits for Balsam is crafted from Champagne yeast fermented Pennsylvania potatoes distilled in a copper pot still to 151 proof, and filtered through coconut shell charcoal. This luxuriously smooth and powerful spirit is then infused with a propriety blend of Rare Tea Cellar Pu-ehr teas, dried fruits, exotic citrus, whole spices, wormwood and European roots & herbs traditional to 18th Century vermouth formulations. Finally it is balanced with raw cane sugar.
The result is a versatile liqueur that you can enjoy on the rocks, mix with a classic or modern cocktail or blend one part of Balsam with three parts of your favorite wine and make your very own sweet vermouth.
