“Art in The Age” ROOT is based on old Root Tea medicinal infusions that date back to the 1700s where settlers learned of the value of these North American herbs from the Native Americans. Because of the purifying and preservative power of alcohol, it was added to the herbs and then finally…a spoonful of sugar to make the medicine go down. 100% organic neutral grain spirit mixed with roots, herbs, spices, citrus and pure cane sugar – this stuff is delicious! The nose is sweet with birch, mint, oily spices and sugarcane honey. Flavors move on your palate bouncing, it seems, from the Wintergreen; and then with delicate finesse, birch, vanilla, citrus, clove and allspice flavors in a bed of clean sweet taste reveal themselves. On the finish everything resolves and finally the smoked tea shines clearest here as does the nutmeg. A masterful achievement and a joy to drink–terrific neat and even better with ice, also amazing used in a great cocktail.

From what I’ve heard about this concoction, it’s taste is reminiscent of root beer.  I’ve experimented with root beer and booze in the past, but I’ve only been mildly successful.  The closest I’ve come to a somewhat tasty beverage involved mixing A&W, Vanilla Coke, and a whole lot of Captain’s.  It sounds like drinking this ROOT stuff straight up tastes much better, but I bet adding some coke, root beer, or cream soda would work as well.  Someone give it a try and let me know the results.

    Root and white Godiva liquor on the rocks, shake insanely and add to a chilled rocks glass with a little root beer soda. Tastes just like a melted root beer flat. MMMMMM!

    Late to the party, but I just found this stuff. Decent as a whiskey substitute in an old fashion or a Manhattan. Tastes great just sipping it, perhaps on ice, but if you are a beer drinker, dump a shot into your favorite beer poured into a frosty mug. Phenomenal. But don’t have too many. Seriously. Don’t. Really.
