60 Proof (ABV 30%)
Music City is abuzz - hot even. Our Nashville Honey Spiced Honey Liqueur tastes just like that. Hand distilled from cane sugar and honey, this small-batch craft spirit is infused with natural ginger, cardamom, lemon peel, and cinnamon. It's a little sweet, a little spicy.
The base spirit is fermented from honey and cane sugar, then triple distilled. Next, Nashville honey is infused with four botanicals - natural ginger, cardamom, lemon peel and cinnamon - for about a week. Then fresh wildflower honey is added to create a unique sweet and spicy finish.
Nashville Craft's newest launch
Featuring a tasting room, full cocktails and tours, Nashville Craft Distillery produces small-batch craft spirits using quality natural ingredients -- sourced locally whenever possible -- including whiskey, gin and specialty spirits. Distillers conduct the tours six days a week, giving visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the technical details of fermentation and distillation. The facility opened to the public in May 2016 in the Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood near downtown and remains Nashville’s newest craft distillery. A proud member of the Tennessee Distillers Guild, Nashville Craft Distillery is an founding member of the Tennessee Whiskey Trail.
