REGION: New York
DISTILLING: no.3 Solé Mio features Trieber Farms Winter Sweet and Winter Luxury pumpkins. We cut each pumpkin in half, roll in sugar, then blow torch them to caramelized perfection. The inspiration came from our pen pal Averie Swanson, Master Cicerone and Founder / Beermaker of Keeping Together in Chicago. As we were dreaming up Solé no.3 we saw her release Undulant & Impermanent, a barrel aged saison re-fermented with maple roasted carrots and steeped on spent fernet botanicals. Love struck, we shot her a note asking for her blessing and set off searching the web for blow torches, calling our local Agway for propane tanks.
HOW TO SERVE: Neat...or over ice with a dash of Yuzu Sec.
