Liqueur - Spices-Essences
Rating DescriptionTier 2
This is a Tier 2 score in the Liqueur category. It means critics have highly recommended the spirit as a benchmark in the category.
Damiana Liqueur--a resplendent yellow in a bottle shaped after an Incan Goddess--calls itself a "light, herbal-based liqueur" infused with the essence (from the stems and leaves) of the damiana herb of Baja California, described as a "small shrub with smooth, pale green oval leaves and aromatic yellow flowers." They recommend it in a margarita (instead of "that silly French liqueur") WebMD notes it as a traditional aphrodisiac (which recommends it even more for margaritas, in our opinion) as well as a variety of other ailments including constipation and depression (the latter another good use for margaritas).
Damiana is imported and distributed in the United States by Mexcor International.
