Tempus Fugit Spirits Creme De Menthe Glagiale

"Oyster shell/egg white appearance; clean and pure. The peppermint core aroma is absolutely dead-on and is incredibly fresh and herbaceous. Entry flavor is sweet and viscous to the touch but the minty flavor is genuine and intensely splendid; midpalate is long, luxurious and startlingly minty. This should be the only crème de menthe that astute bartenders who care about their craft will want. Excellent all the way." F. Paul Pacult’s The Spirit Journal Highest Recommendation

 The Stinger

Ice cubes, plus crushed ice

2 ounces Cognac

3/4 ounce white crème de menthe 1 mint sprig

How to Make It

Filll a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the Cognac and crème de menthe and shake well. Strain into a crushed ice filled rocks glass and garnish with the mint sprig.

Tempus Fugit Spirits Crème de Menthe is fully distilled from botanicals and is quite unique in its genre. In crossed-referencing manuals in three languages, we discovered that a true historic crème de menthe is quite a complex spirit and cannot be made correctly with just mint alone. After finding a few recipes that remained faithful in these different languages, we assembled the plants and conducted numerous test distillations.

The botanicals are macerated and then fully distilled and the finished distillate is reduced with spring water and cane sugar, similar to the Crème de Cacao. While fully distilling botanicals for the Crème de Menthe is costly and the heart of the distillation is quite small in yield, it produces the best results and the most authentic product. Aromatically the mint is bright and dominant, but is balanced and supported by more deeper, savory notes, owing to the unique recipe of many botanicals, which are not just mints alone. It is silky in the mouth, crisp, yet complex, something that definitely cannot be said for today’s industrialized crème de menthes. Tempus Fugit  28% ABV
