Tasting Notes

Tempus Fugit spirits are highly-coveted products by mixologists spanning the globe, and their Creme de Cacao is a benchmark for the category. Based on an original 19th Century recipe, the highest quality cacao is sourced from Venezuela. The raw cacao is distilled and macerated along with crushed Mexican vanilla, providing for a natural color. Rich, dense, and sweet, the chocolate and vanilla are perfect partners. This is a clear stand-out spirit.

Staff Pick Notes

Hands down the greatest, most authentic Creme de Cacao...Period! I'm already a huge fan of Tempus Fugit products but their Creme de Cacao literally takes the chocolate cake. They have somehow managed to capture the true essence of the Cacao bean! So mouthwateringly intense on the nose, it smells like pure Cacao beans and vanilla. It is by far the most complex chocolate flavored liqueur on the market. Try it after dinner with a splash of soda and ice or in this delightfully complex, but simple cocktail: Kentucky River, 2oz. Bourbon, .5oz Creme de Cacao, half barspoon apricot liqueur, 3 dashes orange bitters, Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass and stir with ice. Strain into a rocks glass over one large cube. Garnish with a lemon peel. (Volstead Act, Spokane, Washington)
