The first edition of our new seasonal curaçao
For 2018-2019, we’re kicking off a new annual tradition – a seasonal spirit for the holiday season.
Each year, we’ll introduce a new take on a delicious curaçao. What is a curaçao, you ask? It’s a specific style of orange liqueur, classically made with a variety of oranges, including bitter oranges (such as the Laraha, which are native to the island of Curaçao, or Seville oranges, which were planted on Curaçao by Spanish settlers). The fundamental orange notes will be the constant – everything else will change each year.
For our first edition, we’re starting with a base spirit made from honey. We’ve fermented the honey into a mead and distilled it. Then, we’re adding a variety of oranges, along with a few spices and herbs. The result is a delicious, nuanced sipping liqueur. It also happens to be great in cocktails too, of course.
We’ll be celebrating the launch at the distillery on Saturday, December 8th, and bottles will start hitting stores & bars around that time. Keep an eye out for it!
Beehive Curaçao is 40% alcohol by volume (80 proof)
