Patagonian Spirit

What is Träkál? It’s so difficult to place that the TTB had to give it its own category. From Patagonia, Chile, this clear, fragrant spirit is distilled from local pears and apples and infused with native aromatic berries and herbs. It’s a fascinating sipper, fruity at first, then complex with spice, mint, smoke and other hard-to-name notes. It’s also good with a splash of tonic and a grapefruit peel.
