Using the principal of Maceration, Bootleg blends infuse high-proof liquor just as one would make a cup of tea. In as few as 9 hours, aspiring Mixologists can transform their base liquors into flavors such as Absinthe, an Old Fashioned, a spicy Cinnamon Whisky or Gin.
Creators Ryan and Melanie Belshee are “proud to offer a natural way for alcohol lovers to experiment with creating delicious flavored alcoholic drinks that are free of unwanted food dyes, chemicals or unnecessary amounts of sugar.”
Current flavors being offered through Kickstarter include the Absinthe infusion and the Old Fashioned blend. A variety of levels grant backers a “first taste” of these two blends along with other items such as a reproduction Whisky prescription from 1931 personalized with the backers information, Absinthe accessories and mixing kits.
Stretch goals have been announced that will add additional flavors, including an exclusive Kickstarter blend, as the campaign runs its 30 day course.
Bootleg Botanical’s Kickstarter project will run from January 29th until February 28, 2014. It is currently live at: https://www.kickstarter.com/
