100ml Mirto (Summer Release)
Summer 2021 sees a limited and slightly different return our limited release Mirto digestivo.
As a small producer, when seasonal ingredients become available we can deliver small batches to our special customers.
Mirto is traditionally from the island of Sardinia, made from bitter myrtle berries (myrtus communis) and is served as a digestivo or over ice as an aperitivo.
A trip urban foraging with a Sardinian friend in Hobart started this summer tradition a few years ago. As far as we can tell this is the only Mirto commercially produced in Australia.
Our Tasmanian take on this popular liqueur includes myrtle berries picked in suburban Hobart and a mix of white sugar and Tasmanian Blue Gum honey for a depth of hearty sweetness.
Unfortunately, this year the supply of myrtle berries was limited so there are just fifty 100ml bottle available this year. This smaller bottles will allow more people to share this amazing Digestivo (better than just ten 500ml bottles!)
Deep purple and slightly hazy from the combination of natural ingredients.
The unmistakable bitter aromatic tone of myrtle berry, with a subtle undertone of bush honey.
Immediately, astringent bitterness hits from the core myrtle flavour. As this subsides some herbaceous but jammy, fig-like characteristics build as the heat from the alcohol sharpens.
With extreme viscosity, the hearty bush honey coats your mouth and takes over the aftertaste.
