Proof66 Notes

St Josef Arquebuse is made in Germany and bottled at a stiff 100 proof (moonshine strength, if you like). The name comes from the old French term for a gun (think musket or perhaps "blunderbuss") and presumably the taste and the alcohol strength provides the imbiber with the same kick and doubtful control as these ancient guns. It present clear infused with over 30 different herbs, somewhat similar in style to infused spirits like gin, genever, or aquavit.
