Apples and Bourbon – Rimann Liquors

Apples and Bourbon

September 1, 2013

Late summer harvest brings bounties of pears and apples.

We offer several ways to work them into your cocktail creations.

Thatcher’s Organic Apple Spice Ginger Liqueur  delivers fresh apples and all-natural spices combined with a hint of fresh ground ginger.  The aromas are clean and pure.  It is a delicious liqueur that is not sticky sweet in taste.  Enjoyed best with bourbon and vodka based cocktails.
