The recipe for Absinthe Rhum Decollage was inspired by an academic study performed by Alice Peeters in 1976: “Le petit paysannat Martiniquais et son environnement végétal”, which described how farmers in Martinique used to soak various plants including grand wormwood in rum, rather like the tradition of 'Rhum Arrangé' in Guadeloupe, Reunion and Madagascar: rum infused with spices and fruit.
Wormwood-infused Rum is obtained through the maceration of grand wormwood and other plants in a high quality rum from Martinique, sugarcane amd wormwood distillates. The result is a slightly sweet rum with wonderful herbaceous notes. It is important to note that unlike absinthe, this rum does not contain anise. Additionally, the wormwood flavour is stronger than in traditional absinthe.

Fernet-Branca is a classic Italian digestif that was created in 1845 by spice trader Bernardino Branca. The spices come from four continents; chamomile from the Americas, iris root; lime tree and gentian root from Europe; bitter orange, myhrr and aloe from Africa and saffron, cinamon and galangal from Asia. The herbs and spices are then macerated to extract their flavour. Then the liquid is aged for 12 months in oak, to create this very popular bitter.
Fernet Branca Menta is based on the same recipe as Fernet Branca including an assortment of 40 herbs, roots, and spices. While the exact recipe is a secret, we do know that Fernet-Branca contains aloe, gentian, chamomile, angelica, chincona, colombo root, chinese rhubarb, myrrh, peppermint, saffron, and iris. Branca Menta adds to the equation more sugar and peppermint oil. The lead note on the nose for Branca Menta is sweet mint, while Fernet Branca leads with bitter aloe. Underneath the mint in the Branca Menta are all the wonderfully bitter herbs that make Fernet what it is, but the sweet mint is so strong that they exist more as suggestions than anything else. The nose is considerably less complex on the Branca Menta than Fernet Branca, but it’s also considerably more inviting. The entry for Branca Menta is also considerably more inviting. Sweet mint jumps onto the palate from the get go, and feels like a liqueur on the palate with a thick and heavy mouthfeel. The thick layer of sweet mint does open slightly to allow some of the slightly bitter fernet elements to emerge in the midpalate, including the bitter aloe, chinese rhubarb, and saffron. Branca Menta’s bitter qualities really peak towards the end of the palate, but it’s also the point where the mint gets most intense. The sweet mint wins the battle here and dominates the finish with strong mint lingering for an extremely long time.

Tempus Fugit Spirits Crème de Cacao is based on a 19th century recipe. The original source of cacao for the best quality of Crème de Cacao was cacao from Venezuela and the best source of vanilla was from Mexico, it was important to us that we specifically sourced these two ingredients to reproduce the best quality of Crème de Cacao. The raw cacao is distilled and the distillate is then macerated with additional cacao and crushed whole vanilla bean. The process not only gives a depth of character, but also naturally colors the Crème de Cacao a medium brown. The term Crème was applied to these styles of spirits due to the creamy mouth-feel caused by the addition of a high concentration of sugar, in our case we use cane sugar. The finish on our Crème de Cacao is quite aromatic and round with intense, dusty-pure cacao flavors and light wisps of vanilla.
