500ml Mirto (Summer Release)
Summer 2020 sees the 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.
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.
Deep purple and 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.
