Proof66 Notes

broVo Rose Geranium (or "+RG") liqueur is made with organically grown rose geranium flowers along with "four other secret ingredients" to make the liqueur. Like all their liqueurs, they note it is heavier on the nose than the palate and suggest it for an English Rose cocktail: 1 oz Roes Geranium liqueur, 1.5 oz vodka, shaken and served Martini style.  The +2 indicates a heightened proof and sweetness to make the liqueur more easily mixed in cocktails (as should be clear from the "craft cocktail strength" on the label).

Here at Proof66, we had an opportunity to personally taste this liqueurand loved it, saying: "Rose Geranium is more like a violin—we don’t actually like listening to violins all alone even if they sound rather nice but they are essential  and memorable in any symphony."  Recommended cocktail: The Stagged Rose: 2 parts Red Stag Black Cherry bourbon; 1 part broVo Rose Geranium; shake on ice, drop in a shooter, throw it back.

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."
