Roots Rakomelo Sweet Liqueur
"One of the 10 best winter warming drinks around the world" - The Guardian
750ml & 48 Proof
|Tasting Notes||Strong and flamboyant, fruity and slightly nutty smell. Naturally sweet, honey, and spirited taste. Subtle presence of spices with a very rich and delicate mouthfeel.|
Ways to Enjoy
Classic: Best sipped with good company in the winter.
Unexpected: Mix with cold brew coffee, tonic water and a little bit of fresh lime.
|Production Notes||A centuries old recipe of a soothing raki brew with mountain honey and spices from the Aegean Islands in Greece.|
The rough landscapes alongside the wide biodiversity of flora combined with the Aegean summer sun makes Greek honey some of the finest in the world. Thyme honey is the most revered Greek honey as thyme-fed bees produce less honey, making it rare and unique.
|Founder Facts||Brothers Manos and Nikolas are related to the owners of Callicounis Distilleries, established in 1850 and the oldest working Greek liqueur distillery in the country. Shop all Roots bottles.|

I've had various other honey liqueurs from "honey whiskeys" to meads but this is totally different. its sweet and spiced in a way that i would think a good mulled mead would taste like. It is not spicy the way high proof alcohols are, nor in the way capsaicin (spicy hot food/sauce), but like a spice cabinet is.
My palette is not good enough to pick out individual things in food and alcohol like some people can but it very pleasantly reminds me of autumn or winter spices, so probably like cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, and allspice. i would not claim that its subtle at all though, the spices are very apparent with both the smell and taste but not at all overpowering, just a wonderfully warming drink for my evenings as i wait for summer.Was this helpful?
