Proof66 Notes

broVo Amaro No. 4 is made by Patrick Haight, who serves as the Food and Beverage Manager of Snoqualmie Casino. It was inspired by a rhubarb liqueur (initially declared a mistake) that became in his hands a line of seven liqueurs made in the fashion of Italian bitters liqueur. They say it has a "strong hibiscus note" followed by citrus and a sweet/spicy finish (see the announcement in EatSeattle.com

We had an opportunity to personally try the No. 1 and found it delightful... see our full write-up, where we said "after an exhaustive tasting, we can definitely declare: if you want to elevate an herbal cocktail, then use broVo No."

broVo Spirits is a Washington-based company that makes what they call "lady-made liquor." It was founded by Mhari Voelsgen and Erin Brophy, both Seattle natives. They produce a line of handcrafted liqueurs made specifically for designer cocktails after consulting and working with local restaurants. Their spirits are marked by strong aromas, low sugar content, and tend to be lower-proofed, which they believe targets the female market. (hat tip to the Puget Sound Business Journal) They work with local products ("authentically local") and look to make creative, "single note" liqueurs. As of April, 2013 they are producing their own spirits out of Woodinville, Washington. They use a Vendome copper pot still that they have affectionately named "the Dude" despite the fact that they also refer to it as a "she."

after an exhaustive tasting, we can definitely declare: if you want to elevate an herbal cocktail, use broVo No. 4. It's a fantastic example of the liqueur if a touch sweeter than typical. If it suffers at all, it is that it suffers in the same way every bitters liqueur does: it's complex, particular, and designed for specialty, dedicated uses. Imbibed alone, there is little point… but as an accent in a cocktail it is the fireworks on a first-date kiss.
