Proof66 Notes

Art in the Age Root Liqueur is an amaro-style bitters liqueur made from a blend of 13 herbs that include anise, allspice, cardamon, cinnamon, spearmint, lemon, black tea, wintergreen, clove, orange, nutmeg, sugar, and birch bark. It is an homage to the "root tea" made from in Pennsylvania in the early decades of America. They say that the root tea, absent alcohol, came to be called "root beer" during Prohibition. While sweetened, it should be considered a sweet-styled liqueur but in the "bitters" family of spirits.

Art in the Age is short for "Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction." They seek creative artists woven together in a web of personal contacts. In what we at Proof66 see as an echo of Thomas Carlyle's rant coming to us from the industrial revolution of the 18th century, Art in the Age proclaims: Rather than exist at a distance in the white cube of the gallery space, we weave our offerings into the collective surface of myriad personal contexts. In this troubling epoch of industrial commodification, standardization of reproduction, and fomentation of a society of shallow spectacle, Art In The Age issues a challenge and rally cry. We fight fire with fire, subsuming the onslaught of watered down facsimiles and inaccessible displays with thought-provoking products of real cultural capital.

Art in the Age spirits were acquired by William Grant & Sons in June of 2010. Production moved from California to Tamworth Distilling of New Hampshire.

I'd been interested in this since I read about it, and a friend made some available to taste. Nose is all root beer with the accompanying wintergreen and herbal notes, but it's drier than expected on the palate. Horehound and spice as well show up. It's interesting as a much more mature take on Jagermeister-type stuff, but I can't see how you'd mix it.
