Take your cocktails to the next level with this superior Crème de Menthe. This is not the peppermint schnapps you snuck into your hot chocolate in high school. It is a serious liqueur distilled from winter wheat, flavored with real peppermint, spearmint and a few additional botanicals. Sweet and viscous with an herbaceous quality throughout alongside notes of vanilla and citrus that all support the dominant, bold mint flavors and aromas. Noted spirits writer F. Paul Pacult says, this should be the only crème de menthe that astute bartenders who care about their craft will want. Excellent all the way." We think that applies to the home bartender as well. "
What's not to love about a spirits maker whose tagline states they're "dedicated to the glory of a well-made cocktail?" Yeah, we couldn't think of anything either. Tempus Fugit Spirits got started in 2001 with the creation of their distinctive Vieux Pontarlier Absinthe. They've since crafted over 25 different incarnations of the fabled elixir. Discontented with a lack of European expressions, they became an independent US importer of small batch absinthe when it was re-legalized in the states as of 2007. But it's not just about absinthe at Tempus Fugit Spirits - they're proud to source and recreate rare spirits and liqueurs for the discerning connoisseur. Many of their prized spirits would have been lost to history but are now finding a new fan base in America's resurging craft spirits movement. This is a "geeky" spirits company in the best sense of the word and we love them for it.
