The Lait de Romalea Bourbon has been unveiled by US-based Tamworth Distilling as its latest offering that will provide consumers with a premium libation that is infused with unlikely ingredients.
Part of the House of Tamworth experimental series, the bourbon is infused with the foam that is excreted from grasshoppers as a defense mechanism. This is then fermented with black tea leaves before being refluxed in acidic ethanol to achieve the final concoction that is dehydrated and infused into the bourbon. Featuring a 45% ABV, the Lait de Romalea Bourbon is reported to have an exquisite flavor profile with a "floral, rosy and fruity" nose along with notes of plum, berry and tobacco on the palate.
