It’s always exciting to bottle new J. Carver spirits for the very first time - and we have 2! Introducing Cruella Amaro: a bitter/sweet Italian-style herbal liqueur and J. Carver 100 proof Wheat Whiskey.
Cruella Amaro has been one of our favorites to develop, and now it can be one of your favorites at home too! Cruella Amaro is an herbal liqueur made at J. Carver Distillery that is commonly consumed as an after-dinner digestif. It has a bitter flavor with a perfect kiss of sweetness. It is rye whiskey based, and infused with a blend of many herbs, spices and roots, including gentian, saffron, hyssop, rose hip, sweet and bitter orange, chamomile and galenga, with several other botanicals to balance the many complex flavors. Enjoy the many tasty herbal flavors of Cruella on its own or use with our Sevilla Liqueur to elevate amazing flavors when making your Old Fashioned, Manhattan, or Whiskey Sour. Stop out and try a tasty libation or check out our website for delicious cocktails using Cruella Amaro. http://www.jcarverdistillery.com/cocktail-recipes/

Carver 100 proof Wheat Whiskey on liquor store shelves beginning this weekend.
