The Good Reverend's Universal Spirit
Tamworth Distilling // New Hampshire, USA
Tamworth made a high proof distillate that is meant to be a sort of Swiss Army knife. An organic corn-based spirit bottled at 75% ABV that can be used for high octane cocktails, infusions, or watered down for ample neutral spirit.
Unflavored VodkaDistilled from any agricultural product, most commonly grains or potatoes. Typically distilled to 95% ABV. Water is added to bring the spirit down to as low as 37.5% ABV in the EU and 40% ABV in the US. It is usually filtered, often with charcoal, prior to bottling. It is almost always clear and unaged.
"Heavens this is punchy! Big fumes of ethanol masking dainty vanilla. The palate predominantly tastes of charcoal, though there is some malt and graham cracker buried deep. The texture is round and pleasant but the alcohol amps up the impact of this overall. Use for an infusion or craft a new Eye Opener cocktail around this."
