We aim to change that. We spent two years working on an orange liqueur. We wanted to make the margarita shine.
After all that R&D, we ended up with a curacao. It combines neutral cane spirit, with a 2 year old French brandy and a little neutral grain spirit for edge. We add three orange types- sweet from California’s central valley, laraha oranges from Curacao and Valencia oranges from Spain. We add coriander, clove, hibiscus and vanilla to the mix, then sweeten with a turbinado simple syrup made from Maui Raw Sugar. As a final stage, we add a vegetable based glycerin to add to the mouthfeel.
The result is a sweet, rich curacao with lots of flavor.
