The Bitter Truth Golden Falernum Liqueur 500ml
Country of origin: Germany Alcohol content: 18% ABV
The Bitter Truth – Golden Falernum Liqueur is an exotic spiced liqueur on the base of the finest Caribbean Rum. In ancient Rome Falernum was the name of the most favoured and most expensive wine. Modern Falernum has almost nothing in common with its ancient predecessor except its rich golden tint. This sweet liqueur was usually flavoured with limes, almonds, cloves and ginger, and gained in importance during the tiki era in the middle of the 20th century.
This Falernum is gold in color, taste and texture, but never one note, it is a calypso of flavor. On the nose are fresh lime, seashell and ginger with just a hint of christmas. The taste carnivals from fresh ginger to vanilla and almond, surfing towards an atomic fireball. Allspice giving into a splash of lime and a delicate hint of Bajan sweet pepper sauce-like heat. With length that feels like a two week holiday, this little number can perk up any aged spirit and instantly turn it into a drink worthy of adornment with a plastic monkey and a paper umbrella.
At 18% alcohol, The Bitter Truth – Golden Falernum Liqueur is stronger than other falernums while still having a lower alcohol content than most liqueurs, lending itself to both uses in cocktails or drunk on its own over ice.
Enjoy neat, on ice, or in a Corn and Oil. Its main use in conteporary bars is as part of a well stocked tiki backbar, featuring in drinks like Three Dots and a Dash, or the Zombie.
