Journeyman Humdinger Jalapeno Spirit begins life from a whiskey base of 100% organic rye grain. This itself should lend a kind of spicy, robust flavor to the spirit. They macerate (that is, give a good, thorough soaking) locally grown jalapeno peppers from the community (organic) garden. They are quick to note that the process retains the flavor of the jalapeno but none of the spicy heat. We have opted to list this as an infused vodka to better represent it in its peer group, though we're quick to note the unusually high proof of 90 relative to flavored vodkas (often less than 80). They call it "sweet and spicy" and suggest for a Bloody Mary cocktail.
