Made according to an 1883 recipe using small reddish bananas from Costa Rica which are allowed to ripen until mid-brown. The ripened bananas are peeled, and the flesh macerated in 60% neutral alcohol for 7-10 days before small-batch distilling to concentrate the flavour.
The banana skins are macerated in alcohol to produce this deep amber liqueur.
