Mystical elixir for calming mellowness
Three Spirit was one of the first brands to explore the idea of offering alternatives to recreate the pleasure-inducing properties of alcohol, rather than simply mimicking its taste. They offer a drink to make you feel lively, one to make you feel sociable, and this one, created to induce a mellow, relaxed feeling. The bottle shown in the photo is from their sample set of three different bottles of 200ml each. You can also buy this drink in the standard 500ml size.
I tried sipping the nightcap late at night, after a stressful day trying to complete many different tasks. My brain was buzzing with what I had to achieve and any aid to relaxation was going to be very welcome. The colour is a murky brown, like cold tea, and aromas of wood and spice came through strongly, almost reminiscent of a room filled with cedarwood furniture. There’s the mouth-drying properties of tannin in the mix, and deep woody flavours with an undertone of sweetness from the liquorice and maple syrup. A deep prickly finish, not unpleasing, reminds me this contains ginger and turmeric. I felt de-stressed and easy, and slept beautifully.
