Thatcher's Organic Coffeehouse, Blood Orange & Yumberry
A while back, we wrote about Thatcher's Organic Elderflower as a well-received replacement for the ubiquitous St. Germain. We're fans of Thatcher's and what they're doing with various liqueurs, and today we're happy to report three new flavors (and the fact they've arrived safely on our doorstep). The three new expressions have been in development for the last 18 months, and are known as Coffeehouse, Blood Orange, and Yumberry. Rather than try to sum them up ourselves, we'll give you the rundown right from the horse's mouth - Dave Racicot, founder of Thatcher's:
Coffeehouse comes from a blend of organic coffees which we have found work pretty well together. The hard part was some regional taste differences such has dark and earthy like the Pacific Northwest and sweet like the Northeast. The one universal point was people did not want artificial, syrup, tacky.
Yumberry I had tried when in China and loved what could happen with it so I was off to the races. The strawberry/raspberry fusion was perfect for spring, summer and warm weather cocktails. We have been having it in sparkling wine/champagne during Sunday brunch and it is a huge hit. There are so many cocktails that can be created from it, martinis, mojitos, margaritas, and even in sparkling water there are some very cool combination's which friends have been coming up with. Plus, the name Yumberry, how cool is that!
Blood Orange was the near death of me. Finding enough organic blood oranges to get everything from color, aromatics and taste was very hard. They come from the US and Sicily, Italy. I have always loved Blood Oranges and wanted to find a way to capture it in a liqueur in a way nobody else has. We have found it to work well in margaritas, martinis and be a great with a nice blanco tequila on the rocks.
We'll be playing around with these as soon as we can, but until we do, learn about all 11 (eleven!) flavors at Thatcher's Organic
