Tempus Fugit Crème de Noyaux
Tempus Fugit Spirits Crème de Noyaux is a classic 19th century French liqueur craft-made by distilling apricot and cherry pit kernels, combined with bitter almonds and other botanicals, creating a complex, nutty, pit fruit-sweet aroma and flavor, with a slight touch of balancing bitterness on the finish. Many years of research and tests were needed to finalize the production techniques and secure local Swiss sources of the natural ingredients indicated in the original protocols. Its garnet-red color comes from the addition of the natural coloring cochineal, following historic directives. We are confident that this liqueur represents the classic, lost Crème de Noyaux, prized by the best bartenders of the Golden Age. It is a perfect addition in many classic cocktails (especially those that call for nut or cherry liqueurs ) as a primary mixing ingredient or equally as versatile in dashes, in the fashion of a cocktail bitters.
