Tempus Fugit Spirits Crème de Cacao is based on a 19th-century recipe, cross-referenced in English and French. Terroir is important for ingredients, and the original source of cacao for the best Crème de Cacao was cacao from Venezuela while the best source of vanilla was from Mexico.
Off the charts sweetness and powdered cocoa on the nose. Followed by amazing cocoa andbutter at entry, midpalate is spot-on dark chocolate, but neither bitter nor semisweet, it’s a perfect balance.
The raw cacao is distilled and the distillate is then macerated with additional cacao and crushed whole vanilla bean. No color added.
The mixture of cacao from Venezuela with vanilla beans from Mexico, gives a depth of character and a rich natural brown color.
