Crème de Cacao à la Vanille Liqueur
95 points, “This is a tasty upgrade for cocktails.” – Wine Enthusiast
Those looking for a chocolate liqueur, should look no further than this. If being loved by Wine Enthusiast and everyone at Harvey Nichols isn’t enough, F. Paul Pacult said of Tempus Fugit Spirit’s Crème de Cacao à la Vanille Liqueur in The Spirit Journal: “The best I’ve tasted, period.”
Based on a 19th Century recipe, this Crème de Cacao à la Vanille Liqueur is made by distilling raw cacao from Venezuela. The spirit is then used to macerate crushed vanilla beans from Mexico and more cacao. This gives immense depth, the nuttiness of hazelnuts and almonds, sweet vanilla, dark chocolate and cocoa powder notes. Super sweet and unctuous like Pedro Ximénez, it can be sipped as a digestif with a splash of soda water, poured over ice cream or, as Wine Enthusiast said, it’s a tasty way to upgrade cocktails such a Brandy Alexander or to add a chocolatey twist to a Martini or White Russian.
Tempus Fugit means “time flies”, and it certainly does when you’re drinking cocktails made with these beautifully packaged Swiss spirits. Tempus Fugit Spirits are dedicated to the art of the well-made cocktail. While most of us are prone to focus on the quality of the “main” spirit in a cocktail, such as gin, vodka, whisky, rum, etc., Tempus Fugit dedicate themselves to the rarer spirits or “modifiers” from the pre-Prohibition era, and these are the ones that can really make or break the classic cocktails. Many lesser producers often use unnatural colouring, industrial methods and artificial flavours knowing full well that most people won’t drink them neat and realise that they’re awful. But Tempus Fugit aren’t like that, they seek out long lost, centuries-old recipes and rare, high-quality ingredients, and lovingly combine them in a very old-school, small-batch production, just as it would have been done back in the day. This is the spirit of history.£5 per 100.00ml
