Vespertino Tequila Cream Liqueur
Vespertino is a new star in the cream Liqueur category. The Silver Tequila base is the ideal canvas for the alluring and complex flavors of fresh cream, brown sugar, cinnamon, cocoa, and vanilla. The name Vespertino means evening in Spanish and the flavors echoes that meaning with its suggestion of rich desserts offered south of the border. Vespertino launched in February 2017 and has rapidly become available in over a dozen states with many more coming soon.
Vespertino was created by brand owner Jeff Johnson who was inspired by the tastes and flair 0f Southwest and Central American desserts. Johnson cooked up the first version of this tasty Liqueur in his home kitchen using raw Mexican brown sugar and Mexican cinnamon. The brand has absolutely taken off as once Vespertino is tasted, a fan is born.
Milky, mocha/almond color. The aromatics are wonderfully seductive with scents of cinnamon, caramel, freshly grated brown sugar, and vanilla with hints of milk chocolate, cream, and subtle fruity Tequila accents. The palate echoes the nose delivering a silky creamy core with an explosion of chocolate supported by brown baking spices, rich cream, and vanilla bean. Medium-bodied with a lush, velvety center with intriguing spice notes and a pleasing balance.
How to Serve
Serve chilled after dinner. Vespertino needs nothing but a glass but it does work beautifully in a wide range of cocktails ranging from iced to hot.
Price: $ 21.99
