Spirits 101 Escubac
Before the modern incarnation of whisk(e)y, there was a spirit called Usquebaugh. The spirit was often unaged and infused with various botanicals, which has a shared history with so many of the spirits we now love. The spirit lost its botanicals, gained some barrel aged character, lost the second half of the word, and Usque eventually became Whisky (or whiskey). Escubac is a throwback to the botanical infused spirit of the past

“The spirit contains the flavours of citrus, cassia (cinnamon), cardamom, nutmeg and so many others. It has one of the most complex flavour profiles of any spirit I have been involved with. The aromas are warming with a mixture of baking spices, orange and fresh cut flowers. The palate has an intensity that is bold and rich with vanilla and nutmeg. There is also a light licorice note that marries the flavours together. Although sweet, it is more subtle than overt and it has a long pleasant finish”
