Only handpicked and hand zested natural macerated fruits are used - theirgorgeous organic oils and fragrant colour is what makes the magic of ourNaked Limoncello.
Lemon Limoncello sets the tone for all others Prima Donna di Limoni - First Lady of Lemons, naturally naked.
For our first batch: 1400 hand picked organic lemons of a friends farm. These werehand zested, the skins macerated for twelve days in fragrant wine spirits to infuse the spirit with lemon oils, turning it a vibrant lemon yellow. The resulting liquor falls naturally bright and clear and is lightly sweetened with home made cane syrup to balance the flavours. Naked Lemon is bottled at 30% alcohol and is best served ice cold in small liqueur glasses.
Limoncello is Italys most famous and most loved liqueur. It is usually served after dinner as a digestive but is also enjoyed at the cocktail hour. Chefs use it in deserts like crepes Suzette and hostesses drizzle it over home made vanilla ice cream or use to actually make ice cream. Good Limoncello should not be too sweet, allowing full expression of sunshine and citrus with hints of vanilla and traces of mintiness. No artificial flavours or colours, and no preservatives are used.
The Naked NAARTJIE is seductively sexy, it speaks to the Savingnac Potstill with its rich orange and naartjie nectar character. The BAY LEAF then speaks to the Absinthe, offering a heady journey of unctuous herbaceousness.
Field of Dreams
(by Roger Jorgensen)
A South African handrafted organic ABSINTHE. Distilled in the traditional French way it isa Labour of Love.
Field of Dreams is an authentic high-proof 72% absinthe. Our ingredients are organic and our process is traditional, first distilling with freshly dried primary herbs from the current season, then infusing with the secondary colouring herbs at precisely the right temperature to create balance and finesse. We do not use essences and artificial colourants.
Correctly made pre-ban absinthe never contained enough thujone to actually harm anyone. Several of the botanicals we use in Field of Dreamsdo contain thujone, but it is balance, depthand authenticity that we strive for.
Field of Dreams Absinthe is as seductive and inspiring as its famous devotees.
It is distilled in small batches from home grown organic herbs, especially Versailles wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) together withanise, fenneland angelicain the finest traditions of the French masters -to an 1871 recipe. The colouring herbs used to create the vibrant greenhue and complete the complex flavour profile feature hyssop, melissa and roman wormwood.
Field of Dreams Absinthe Superior is inspired by the Belle poque when the beautiful people of the Caf Society of the Left Bank and Montmartre were living in a culture of intense creativity and excitement. Painters, poets, writers, thinkers and society belles and beaux indulged in the legendary excesses of the period. Their muse was life itself fuelled by wild enjoyment of Absinthe, the notorious Green Fairy.
The great works of Hemmingway, Wilde, Degas, Manet, Van Gough, Rimbaud, Verlaine, Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec, Poe, Baudelaire and countless others owe at least something to visions seen in a field of dreams inspired by Absinthe.
Ultimately these excesses ruined the virtue and sanity of many. Ears went missing, drunkenness became commonplace and the beautiful people succumbed to their Bohemian lifestyles, leading ultimately to the banning of Absinthe in 1915. Thankfully the work of the beautiful people remains to inspire and show us our potential.
Our Absinthe does not, though, as per the legend, make you hallucinate (much), see green fairies, paint like Degas, write like Hemmingway or be as wild as Wilde who knows what you will see in our Field of Dreams, or what it will see in you!
For maximum enjoyment the required amount of Field of Dreams Absinthe should be diluted slowly with three times its volume of iced water. Watch the mesmerising louche, or colour change, savour the fragrance and sip slowly. If you prefer your absinthe sweeter drip the iced water over a cube of sugar and let it dissolve into the absinthe. Its legendary panty dropping powers diminish if too much is drunk, so please savour your Field of Dreams, don't savage it
