Spirited Thave

Winter evenings have been enriched lately by a little sip of amaro from Forthave Spirits. Found this hulking reserve release at Civil Alchemy in Webster Groves and started enjoying it as part of our Christmas celebration. With the indulgent taste and sensational label comes an equally compelling story:

MARSEILLE is based on the secret recipe of four medieval thieves. They were caught stealing from plague victims in Marseille. In exchange for clemency, they revealed their secret concoction.
