In the Glass
Brilliant, crystal clear.
The nose reveals vibrant ginger aromas married with brown sugar with hints of citrus. Its aromatics profile is a dead-ringer for my homemade ginger syrup.
The palate is in full accord with the nose with a rich, silky entry that soon gives way to flavors of freshly grated ginger. The finish builds in peppery intensity and lingers on for minutes.
Intensity & Texture
The Barrow's Intense is truly intense with a fresh and assertive ginger note that delivers the flavors and power that ginger lovers desire.
The Barrow's Intense Ginger is a handmade, natural product with great flavors and incredible versatility at the pro and home bar. Besides, I love ginger.
This is not cheap but then again, nothing real and delicious is cheap. At just over $30 for a 750ml this is a reasonable value in my estimation and I'm happy to pay it.
The Barrow's Intense Ginger is marketed in the US by Serrallés USA (Don Q Rums, Death's Door, Caliche Rum, Wondermint Liqueur, and Kringle Cream), which is a statement of quality. This is a natural product being produced with just four ingredients: ginger, sugar, cane spirit, and filtered water. More than 200 pounds of fresh ginger are used in each batch. It's bottled slightly over-proof at 44 proof allowing a small dose of this liqueur to shine in your cocktails.
How to Enjoy
This is fabulous served simply chilled but this is a cocktail waiting to happen. Simply combine one part of Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur to three parts Whiskey, Rum, or Brandy served on ice with soda and a wedge of lime. This will become an indispensable item in your bar.
