LOST BOTANICALS SERIES: THE PROCESS

The Forbidden Root Botanicals Process

Our current slightly scaled up artisanal process is very much like the tiny exploratory batches. It’s still at a small scale: just a liter or so of tincture, made from less than a pound of botanicals. Dried herbs and fresh citrus peel are weighed and mixed with 80° proof vodka at about a 1:5 ratio and allowed to stand at room temperature for 24 to 48 hours. While some people recommend longer soak times, we find that they can draw out more of the astringent, harsh components. So, for flavor-oriented products, less time seems to give a cleaner product.
