Empirical Spirits The Plum, I Suppose relies on the balance between two very different components. The kernel inside the plum stones is the foundation of this spirit, lending a marzipan, bitter almond flavor. Distilled marigold kombucha contributes floral and tannic notes somehow reminiscent of plum skins.
The marzipan aroma of frangipane tarts in Grandma’s kitchen from childhood. This spirit was in fact inspired by a dessert Lars Williams once had; he still maintains that this is the best dessert of all time.
