B&B Liqueur, 40% ABV, combines Benedictine Liqueur and fine French cognac into an aromatic libation made with 27 different herbs and spices. The base spirit is quite a departure from other spirits created from grapes, grain, or potatoes, as it is made from 100% beetroot from Normandy, France. Made in small batches of 4 distinct recipes, each recipe includes infused vanilla and lemon peels, is aged for 3 months before the marriage of 60% Benedictine and 40% Otard fine French cognac, followed by acacia honey and saffron.
The color is coppery amber and the nose offers heady spice aromas of nutmeg, cardamom, and vanilla, rounded out with caramel and citrus notes. On the palate the taste is warm and buttery with butterscotch notes and has a long, smooth cognac finish.
