Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - Remarkably perfumed with bergamot, burnt orange peel, toasted almond, damp earth, and crushed sage aromas enveloping the nose. Veering more delicate on the palate, orange peel, minerals, and sweet tropical melon come forward. A serious and wonderfully balanced spirit. (Apr 2016)
Our newest spirit, Square One Bergamot, takes the vibrant taste of bergamot citrus and layers it with mandarin, tangerine and navel oranges, plus the herbal warm spice of ginger, coriander and juniper botanicals.
Bergamot orange, predominately grown in southern Italy and along the shores of the Mediterranean, is a hidden gem among citrus fruits. You’re probably most familiar with bergamot’s exceptional influence in Earl Grey tea. We chose distinctive bergamot because, as a sour orange, its peel possess remarkable grassy, floral and tangy qualities. With our multiple botanical approach, we take this fruit out of obscurity and create an orange based clear spirit with greater depth and character than what is typically found among singularly flavored orange vodkas.
