Y Red Liqueur: chili peppers, cinnamon and herbs

Our good friend Dani Tenenbaum dropped off a little taste of heaven (or hell, depending on your threshold for capsaicin pain) for us to taste. Y&Y Spirits’ “Y Red Chilli Liqueur” is pretty self-explanatory. And it tastes awesome. At 80 proof it’s better endowed (and tastes way more natural) than Y Red’s most obvious competitor, and it’s just sweet enough with a bitter, herbaceous finish that keeps you sipping. “Made in Hell, served in Heaven” is this product’s slogan, and we like Y&Y’s copy: “It has no long lasting legacy, no stories of old castles or far-away monasteries. It’s young and sexy and will smack you right in the face.” Keep an eye on these guys/girls at ychilli.com and let’s hope this product makes it to the US market soon. You need to be drinking this stuff instead of that artificially flavored garbage you’ve been guiltily shooting.
