This cacao drink from Solbeso breaks new ground when it comes to distilled spirits. While it's known that grains make whiskey and the agave plant makes tequila, this unique alcoholic drink stems from the cacao fruit. Sourced from farms in Ecuador and Peru, the fresh fruit is fermented and distilled.

As for the taste of the spirit, it's said to be subtle and smooth with only a hint of cacao. Although you might expect the spirit to be exceedingly sweet, modern distribution of cacao pulp cuts down on the sweetness and makes it tolerable as a standalone drink, or as an addition to cocktails. Available online for $40, this novel spirit is something new and exciting to sip on.
