    Tempus Fugit Creme De Noyaux

    Tempus Fugit Spirits Crème de Menthe is fully distilled from botanicals and is unique in its genre. After cross-referencing manuals in three languages, it was discovered that a true historic crème de menthe is quite a complex spirit, and cannot be made correctly with mint alone. After finding a few recipes that remained faithful in these different languages, the necessary plant ingredients were assembled and numerous test distillations we conducted. The botanicals are macerated and then fully distilled; the finished distillate is reduced with spring water and cane sugar, similar to the Crème de Cacao. While fully distilling botanicals for the Crème de Menthe is costly, and the heart of the distillation is quite small in yield. This method produces the best results and the most authentic product. 28% ABV

     

    Tempus Fugit Creme De Noyaux Tasting Notes

    “Oyster shell/egg white appearance; clean and pure. The peppermint core aroma is absolutely dead-on and is incredibly fresh and herbaceous. Entry flavor is sweet and viscous to the touch but the minty flavor is genuine and intensely splendid; midpalate is long, luxurious and startlingly minty. This should be the only crème de menthe that astute bartenders who care about their craft will want. Excellent all the way.” – F. Paul Pacult’s The Spirit Journal
