Cacao Prieto Distilled Spirits
Cacao Prieto is offering 2 Rum based products crafted from Organic Cane Sugar and Organic Dominican Cacao. As with artisanal chocolate making, every Organic Cacao bean is hand roasted, cracked and winnowed. Distillation is followed by a period of aging in oak. The resulting products are truly unique, accurately capturing the aroma and flavor of Organic dark roasted chocolate in a bottle for the first time. In the hands of a mixologist these products represent a brand new color palette for creating new masterpieces or revamping classics. At 40% ABV they can be utilized as a base spirit in cocktails or enjoyed neat, on the rocks or chilled

Tasting notes from Astor Wines: “A local, organic liqueur made from single origin heirloom cacao from 100yr old family owned plantations in the Dominican Republic. A harmonious nose of chocolate and sugar cane greet the nose and follow on the palate with a hint of sweetness and citrus. Very smooth, and an excellent digestif or addition to your best cocktails."
The water used to create this product comes from the Widow Jane mine in Rosendale, New York. Rosendale Limestone possesses an even higher ratio of beneficial minerals than that found in Kentucky and its sparkling waters are as pure as its namesake, the Widow Jane.
The greatest structures in New York are from the gargantuan caissons that allowed the Brooklyn Bridge to soar, to the Statue of Liberty’s 27,000 ton pedestal, to the Empire State Building itself are all held fast and strong by that Rosendale stone.
A combination of unfiltered 91 proof Bourbon and highly mineralized water can lead to a very slight cloudiness (calcium) in the bottle which appears when agitated. It is yet another attractive part of this package. Widow Jane Whiskey is a true New York City whiskey, evocative of both the rock that created the foundation for this city of skyscrapers and the forward looking, DIY spirit that has made Brooklyn the center of a new artisanal food and beverage movement.
Bold, complex aromas of spiced apple fritter, poached pear, hard cinnamon candy, caramel and toffee carry through to the palate where they merge with notes of vanilla-caramel, spicy oak and earthy mineral on the long finish.
