Myrtle Liqueur

After his college years, Co-Founder and Distiller Zack Robinson took a summer trip across Europe. While hiking in Corsica, he discovered a spirit the locals were drinking on their lunch breaks. Expecting a harsh moonshine but surprised by the liqueur’s complex, herbal flavor, Zack learned from his host that the spirit was made with the leaves of the myrtle bush, a hardy shrub native to southern Europe.

Fast forward ten years, and we’ve brought this local specialty across the pond. Our take on Myrtle Liqueur leads with a citrus and rosemary nose, brings notes of bay leaf and camphor, followed by a cool finish.

Why is there sediment in my bottle?
We do not chill-filter any of our spirits. This means they have the full flavor and mouthfeel of their class. As a result, Myrtle will occasionally exude a cloudy or hazy appearance, or sediment may be visible. Have no fear, this is completely natural.

Where to find it
This spirit is a distillery-only product which means it can only be found at our headquarters in Everett. Bottles can be purchased directly through our online shop and picked up anytime within regular business hours. Unfortunately we’re unable to ship spirits at this time.
