Proof66 Notes

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."

broVo Spearmint Liqueur was first released in 2013 where the "+2" in the line of liqueurs indicates a heightened proof and sweetness to make the liqueurs more easily mixed in cocktails (as should be clear from the "craft cocktail strength" on the label). The use grown-in-the-ground spearmint harvested in the summer months in Bellingham, Washington to flavor the spirit and recommend it for a Mint Julep or Mojito cocktail.

The 2013 Beverage Testing Institute claimed it had "great purity, delicacy, and finesse" and recommended for a hot toddy.
