Old Sugar Factory Honey Liqueur
This spirit has yet to face the slings and arrows of the rating agencies.
Old Sugar Factory Honey Liqueur is the first product offered by the craft distiller of the same name. It's named for the US Sugar Company that was in operation from 1906 to 1924 on Madison's east side. This liqueur uses the same type of sugar beet rendered sugar made from locally grown sugar beets and briefly aged in American oak barrels. The honey is also locally grown in Wisconsin. It is a very dry style of liqueur using the minimum of 2.5% sugar to qualify for the label (many liqueurs on the market are in the 20%-30% range). They suggest serving with traditional horchata with lime and honey in soda water.
As a sugar cane base spirit, this could be classified as a rum-based liqueur similar in style to whiskey-based liqueurs such as Drambuie or Wild Turkey American Honey. Honey is the classic, traditional sweetener used for centuries to temper harsher alcohols into milder liqueurs.
About the Producer:
The Old Sugar Distillery was originally founded as Spirits of Madison and later the Old Sugar Factory. The company was launched by Nathan Greenawalt in 2010, who eventually relocated to Madison that same year and took the name in honor of the US Sugar Company, which operated in Madison from 1906 to 1924 rendering sugar beets into sugar.
