An unusual spirit from the Batukaru Rainforest in Bali, Karusotju contains a unique ingredient. This crafted spirit has a sweet-potato base.
The Karu 38 label comes from the distillation of the unique fermentation of yam, a long aging process, and it’s bottling – at 38% alcohol.
Karu 18 is the lighter version, after the aging process, there is a watering down process to reduce the alcohol percentage to 18% alcohol, making it easier to drink and suitable as an aperitif.
Tasting notes: floral – like flowering trees in a rainforest; fruity, predictably complex with a hint of bitterness of pomelo on the tail.
The taste is nostalgic for some and new for others and is very smooth tasting for a spirit. Definitely one to be discovered and enjoyed!
