Clear, straw pale yellow with light golden flecks.
Mild warm candied ginger, ginger cake, brandy, lemon zest and peppery spice.
Hot red pepper tingles a spicy gingery palate. Starts syrupy but the heat and citrus-like acidity quickly build to the extent that this liqueur ends up far from overly sweet.
Lingering hot, peppery ginger finish. Not a liqueur I'd want to drink neat but its punchy, complex ginger flavour makes for a great cocktail ingredient.
