CACAO PRIETO / WIDOW JANE WHISKEY
AT CHILE PEPPER FESTIVAL

Saturday, September 27th, 2014
11 AM – 6 PM
Brooklyn Botanic Garden

 

Cacao Prieto and Widow Jane Whiskey, Red Hook’s premier chocolatier and distillery, will be on the move, setting up shop at Brooklyn’s spiciest festival: The 2014 Chile Pepper Festival.

The festival, located within the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, will be host to 6 bands, fire breathers, and 45 carefully curated food artisans giving out tastings and selling their wares.

Cacao Prieto and Widow Jane Whiskey have crafted a signature hot sauce – a habanero based scorcher fermented in Widow Jane’s own bourbon barrels – for the event. This Widow Jane Hot Sauce is not for the weak of heart.

The intense heat is derived from habanero peppers; yet the fruity aromas and sweetness of these peppers are accentuated through the mellowing properties of the aged bourbon barrels. Cacao Prieto and Widow Jane Whiskey will also be selling their line of 100% organic bean to bar chocolates, cacao liquors and their award winning line of heirloom corn bourbons and rye whiskies.

Widow Jane Distillery:
As great whiskey distillers throughout the world — from Kentucky to Scotland — have long known, it takes sweet water from tough rock to make great whiskey. And, that’s what Widow Jane Whiskey, distilled in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, is all about. Made with pure sweet water of the Widow Jane Mine in Rosendale, New York, it was limestone from this mine which built the Brooklyn Bridge, that Statue of Liberty, and the Empire State Building.

Cacao Prieto Chocolate:
Founded by Daniel Prieto Preston, an inventor and aerospace engineer, whose family has been farming organic cacao and sugar cane in the Dominican Republic for more than 100 years. Cacao Prieto is an Artisan Distillery and produces bean-to-bar chocolate made fresh daily from the finest organic, single origin Dominican Cacao and distills a line of small batch, cacao-based liqueurs and rums.
