Apologue Celery Root Herbal Liqueur
Apologue // Illinois, USA
Apologue Celery Root Herbal Liqueur is made by a Chicago-based company which features regional ingredients from independent farmers. In addition to celery root, ingredients include anise seed, celery stalk, cinchona bark, dill, fennel seed, lemon peel, summer savory, and tarragon. It is sweetened with organic sugarcane.
Herbal/Spice LiqueursHerbal and/or spiced liqueurs make up a bulk of the liqueur family. Oftentimes the recipe or formula is top secret and decades if not centuries old and were created for “medicinal purposes.” Any type of liquor can form the base. Sugar is added prior to bottling.
"The aroma of this liqueur has the unmistakable bright, vegetal notes of a freshly cut celery stalk, with a hint of candied sweetness. On the palate, there's a bite of spice to start, but then it fades out into a lovely herbaceous, celery-forward flavor. Its texture is lighter than you'd expect from a liqueur, and leaves a nice, light coating behind. Drink this in pared down cocktail or on its own for a bite of savory goodness."
