Proof66 Notes

Cacao Prieto Distillery is named for founder Daniel Prieto Preston--a former aerospace engineer who has returned to his Domnican Republic roots in sugar cane production. The family owns Coralina Farms on the island nation and this serves as the source for their cacao and chocolate for all of the spirits production in New York. This gives rise to their claim of "vertical integration" from the source to the bottle in their spirits. The farm produce is considered organic and farmed in sustainable fashion. In addition to spirits, they produce a line of chocolates. 

Don Daniel liqueur is one of their chocolate liqueurs. It is actually a Dominican cacao--a chocolate liqueur--that is distilled to a higher proof and rested for 6 months in French oak. They liken it to a bold red wine. To us, this implies an intensity of flavor with an additional caramel/vanilla typical of oak aging. It is bottled at 80 proof... quite high for liqueurs and much higher than typical cacaos.
