On Wednesday, March 1st, Taprock will be hosting it’s monthly dinner highlighting a brand that we stand behind, Hartford Flavor Co. Their mission is to provide the liquor market – mixologists, retailers, and consumers, with uniquely flavored natural liqueurs that are on-trend and align to the idea that the creative cocktail is an essential aspect of both the social and dining experiences.
Liqueurs are basically sweetened tinctures. In Medieval and Victorian times, tinctures and herbal medicines were sweetened following their creation to help conceal the bitter taste. ‘A spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down’ is exactly what a liqueur is. Most liqueurs of the past were used for the medicinal properties, to aid in digestion, and to help with ailments. They want to get back to this idea – healthful drinking!
