Ad Multos Annos
The Maca Ginseng Elixir was released as a special edition for THE TIME developed, where it was sold exclusively for a few weeks. This handmade Amaro with 35% vol is the further development of the Ginseng elixirs , which have been expanded to include the nutty maca roots. Maca roots are also known as Peru Ginseng and are native to the upper elevations of the Peruvian Andes. Due to the extreme climatic conditions, they became robust roots with high resistance over the centuries. They have always been used both as food and as a medicinal plant.
With the lettering on the gift packaging “Ad Multos Annos” This special feature of both roots (Maca & Ginseng) will be emphasized (for many years).
The Maca Ginseng elixir is powerful and finely balanced on the tongue. Its note is bitter-sweet and lies in the middle of these taste dimensions. The long finish is underlined by a nutty nuance.
After maturing for several weeks, maca and ginseng roots, selected tinctures and essences from gentian, cinchona bark, ginger rhizome, cardamom, cinnamon root, cloves, bitter orange peel, juniper berries, centaury, cinnamon bark, galangal rhizome, camphor, lavender, valerian, citronella, angelica root and a Hints of saffron combine to form the balanced heart of the elixir.
The origin, purity and content (e.g. bitter substances, essential oils) of all herbs are precisely defined here. The standardized high demands on the roots, bark and flowers, which are gently macerated in the pharmacy, are even certified according to German Pharmacopoeia quality.
It is suitable neat (as a digestif), with a few ice cubes (as an aperitif) or as a base for drinks, for example with tonic or in place of Campari in a Negroni. What is important is the slow “rolling” - like when tasting wine - in the front area of the mouth.
