Tasting Notes

The first release of this limited edition spirit from London outfit Sweetdram was made in collaboration with NYC home town favorites Kings County Distillery. Using the Brooklyn distillery's celebrated moonshine as a base, the Sweetdram team infused local seasonal cherries, coriander, hibiscus and allspice, producing a spirit that goes well beyond the category's all too typical over sweetened, artificial alternatives. Bottled at a healthy 40% ABV to best preserve the fruits delicate nature the liqueur is more dry than sweet with notes that include fruit cake, fresh figs, maraschino, chestnuts, roses, amaretto cookies, carrots and cornbread.

Staff Pick Notes

The makers of Sweetdram are gypsy distillers of sorts. Without a distillery of their own, they travel the world with their recipes collaborating with other spirits producers to create highly unique drinks like their Moonshine Liqueur. After perfecting the recipe in their London workshop, they headed West to Brooklyn for the rest. Using Kings County Distillery moonshine as its base, they macerate sour cherries from upstate New York to round out the youthfulness of the un-aged whiskey. Next they add allspice, coriander and hibiscus resulting in a unique, balanced liqueur which can be sipped neat or mixed into a delicious winter cocktail. Try this in your next Manhattan for a tasty twist!
