I don’t understand about you however I’d never heard of bacon bourbon before, so I was extremely ecstatic to try this amalgamation of two individually exceptional products.
The result is tasty – as you’d expect! The infusion process makes the bourbon truly smooth as well as the bacon flavour isn’t overpowering. instead it provides the drink a salty, smoky flavour, as well as there’s a sweetness too. I was extremely impressed.
The method it’s done is with a process called fat washing, which doesn’t noise extremely nice, does it? however it’s not that bad. You can even do it at house by rendering some bacon fat, mixing it with your bourbon of option then refrigerating it.
The fat solidifies at the top of the jar however the alcohol – now tasting of bacon – is still liquid. break with the fat ‘plug’, strain the bourbon as well as hi presto!
This stuff is a bit a lot more advanced than that though. The Experimental Spirits Co utilize 350g of bacon in every bottle, as well as the process they utilize is stated to be very laborious. however it’s worth it.
