Review: Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur


Barrow’s Intense is made right here in Brooklyn New York.  One of the most original tasting spirits we’ve ever tried, Barrows uses lots of Ginger, and nothing else comes between that and its bracingly spicy and refreshing taste. When sipped, you first get the intense ginger flavor with a bit of sweetness.  Roll it around your tongue and you start to get that punch with just a bit of heat.  This liqueur is also one of the most versatile, as enjoyable as a mixer in cocktails or as a chilled post dinner digestif.  We’ve also tried it in hot tea with lemon.  Wow.  The attractive packaging is numbered and has a rubber stopper top.  And the best part is that a little bit goes a long way.  We have used Barrows to give an extraordinary flavor to drinks like Manhattans and Caipirinhas.  It mixes well with rum and gin as well. Club soda, prosecco and Barrows with a squeeze of lime is simply a heavenly experience.  Probably one of our favorite Barrows success stories was mixing it with well chilled TY KU Junmai Gingo Sake and pairing it with Asian Fusion recipes.  Find a bottle as soon as you can to experience the transformative power of Barrow’s intense.
