Letherbee Malört Bësk Liqueuer
Letherbee unites with R. Franklin for a refined rendition of Malört Bësk - the relatively obscure yet infamous liqueur named after the Swedish word for "wormwood". The bitter shot initially hits with flavors of grapefruit before an onslaught of its namesake herb alongside earthy gentian root - an effect that lingers on the palate for quite a surprising while. Beneath the acrid din of the more acute tasting notes rests more gentle traces of juniper, star anise, and elderflower musk. Bottled at 100 proof, Letherbee's Besk remains an esoteric shot for adventurous drinkers, but the bitter liqueur can be gracefully incorporated into sophisticated cocktails.
