Tempus Fugit Liqueur de Violettes (700ml)
Based on a mid-19th-century French formula and made only in micro-batches by Swiss distiller, Oliver Matter for Tempus Fugit. The recipe employs French violets, traditionally hand-harvested in the sunny and historic Côte d'Azur along the Mediterranean Sea.
Tasting note: Eye catching translucent crimson-pink with pale pink edges. First whiffs detect a gorgeous floral perfume that's ultra pure, fresh, true to style and plain seductive, losing no intensity or focus in later inhalations. Entry is soft, cream-textured; develops to a medium bodied, silky profile with the flower aspect brilliantly defined over the liqueur base. Finish is semi-sweet, momentarily confected. Ends artfully balanced with the subtle floral characteristics delicately lingering. A clinic on how to make a flower infused liqueur. 22% Alc./Vol.
