Lime can be very temperamental and difficult to distill, and after all that hard work you can still end up with a spirit that smells and tastes like artificially flavored candy. Enter the kaffir lime the Thais use this citrus because of its high aromatic oil content and bold flavor. The resulting spirit is nothing like we have ever tasted unmistakably lime and endlessly complex.
On the nose: Tart and bright, with lemongrass, ginger and a strong lime character.
On the palate: Sweet, slightly dry and very fresh, with immediate bold lime notes followed by hints of wood, white pepper and cucumber.
