TROPHY - Best NZ Botanical and Other Spirits | New Zealand Spirits Awards 2022
This punchy little rascal is one of No8 Distillery's latest offerings and will transport you straight to the sunny shores of Greece.
Loaded with vibrant caraway and fennel notes, this Ouzo will liven up any liquor cabinet. Drink it neat (if you dare) or try diluted with lots of ice and chilled mineral water.
Combine spirits with your wine order to reach the case rate.
The distiller writes "Soft aniseed on the nose, with olde worlde sweet shops and smoker lollies. On tasting, a little caraway and fennel monster bites your tongue like a 9V battery. Diluting it tames the little bugger, giving you time to enjoy the drop like gentry observing the world from the plateía."
Serve 15ml in a tall glass with lots of ice, topped up with mineral water.
