50% abv. Traditionally paired with chocolates. Herbal, piney, bitter flavours, from Java in the former Dutch East Indies. An aromatic cousin of rum, Arrack is distilled from sugar cane and fermented red rice, using Chinese pot stills with teak vats. For 200 years through the 19th century, this Far East find was the most popular ingredient in most exotic drinks. Featured in 78 recipes from the 1862 cocktail bible, The Bon Vivant's companion. Very expressive aromas. It really jumps out of the glass. Spicy and zesty. Fruity and plummy. Violets on the finish.Ch
