Winemaker's Notes:

From Colombia, in the northwest corner of South America with 700 exotic miles of coastline on the Caribbean and 500 miles along the Pacific, comes Aguardiente Cristal, 100% Colombian spirit. Cristal is considered the National drink of its native land and has become the largest selling Aguardiente in the US. Industria Licorera de Caldas blends its alcohol with the purest water coming from the Nevado del Ruiz and the best natural anise essence from Europe. <strong>Cristal Clean Jelly Bean</strong> This neat twist on the Jelly Bean. Smooth Aguardiente Cristal and Chambord Liqueur... delicious!<br/><br/>1-1/2 oz. Aguardiente Cristal Silver 1/2 oz. Chambord Liqueur <br/><br/>Served over ice in a rocks glass. <br/><br/>

Aguardiente, the name literally meaning “firewater” is a clear, unaged spririt produced from fruit or grain. It’s a catch all category that can include anything from rum, to Brazilian caçacha, to grappa, to pisco, to arak. But countries also produce it as simply aguardiente. In Columbia, it’s considered the national drink, made from sugarcane and most often flavored with anise (like arak), and produced in different regions of the country under many brands. Similarly in Ecuador, aguardiente is largely sugarcane-based, but left unflavored, usually enjoyed in cocktails. In Spain, particularly in Galicia, there are high quality versions known as Aguardiente de Orujo (gold), also produced from grapes. In Portugal, aguardiente is often used to fortify wines like Port and Madeira. In the US, it was largely consumed during the Gold Rush of the mid-1800s, made from the then popular Mission grapes brought over from Spain and Mexico.  Read less
