The creators of the wildly successful Sailor Jerry Rum and Hendrick’s Gin, have developed a new certified 100% organic spirit, for the Art in the Age brand, dubbed ROOT. This spirit is incomparable to anything on the market today, and is the first true American Liqueur in nearly 100 years.
Lively, and rose gold in color, this rustic spirit has a full, rich smoky flavor, inspired by an 18th century Pennsylvania folk recipe, which eventually evolved into Birch or Root Beer. The recipe stems from Root Tea, which goes back to the 1700s, when Native Americans taught the recipe to settlers. Over generations, Root Tea grew in potency, particularly in Pennsylvania, where the ingredients grew in abundance. During the Temperance Movement, a Philadelphia pharmacist removed the alcohol and ironically rechristened it Root Beer. This is our creation of a genuine potent, Root Tea.
ROOT is a certified organic spirit made with North American herbs and pure cane sugar. All botanicals are painstakingly selected and tested for purity. Using all natural, organic ingredients, like anise, birch bark, cloves and cardamom, with hints of spearmint and citrus, the liquor is distilled in limited batches to ensure maximum quality.
Art in the Age’s ROOT signifies a return to creativity and quality in spirits production. Unlike anything else on the market today, ROOT is the first true American liqueur since the Volstead Act.
