What happens when a fly fishing physicist explores the serendipities of a centuries old confluence of bees and booze? JVR Spirits Krupnik. Legends has it that Benedictine monks in Poland and Lithuania made Krupnik as far back as the 15th century. JVR Spirits is made from a krupnik recipe perfected in a Eugene, Oregon garage at the end of the 20th century. The rich flavor comes from whole spices and fresh citrus, blended with honey and column-distilled neutral grain spirits, aged and settled. The result is a tried and true blend you can simply enjoy.
With a nose of honey and cinnamon, Krupnik is unabashedly sweet, but not cloying or treacly. A spice for every palate—it has hints of clove, nutmeg, vanilla, and ginger, with an orange finish. A true liqueur, it has a mouth feel that is perfect to enjoy neat. Also refreshing on the rocks or as flavoring in a cocktail—it pairs especially well with coffee, rum, and even whiskey flavors.
