4 out of 5 stars
( 4 )

Although carrots are technically a vegetable and not a fruit, this eau-de-vie maintains the spirit of unaged fruit brandies. A neighboring farmer had a problem selling misshapen carrots at the market so he sold them to Hans Reisetbauer who made lemonade out of lemons, so to speak. As carrots have less sugar than fruit, it takes 90 pounds of carrots to produce one liter of alcohol.

Tasting Notes

"Raw carrots, roasted carrots, steamed carrots--all of these aromas and tastes come to mind upon encountering this spirit. You'll find this "carrot-ness" rounded out by fennel greens, hops, and burnt walnuts. The palate is a bit more decadent with flavors of caramel, clotted cream, vanilla, and deep-roasted carrot drizzled with honey and hazelnuts (though, of course, the spirit is not sweet). This is a truly fascinating product that is worth your attention. "
