Re: [Distillers] Re: Type of booze for essences
- There is always the option of using agave extract, available from brew suppliers. I don't know I've ever heard of anyone doing it, and it isn't all that cheap, but it's an option to consider.But that might be a different thread, so I am interested in hearing opinions on tequila essences.----- Original Message -----From: Robert HubbleSent: Friday, December 12, 2008 11:09 AMSubject: RE: [Distillers] Re: Type of booze for essences
With all this talk about essences, it's probably time for me
to ask specifically about tequila essence, and what is the
best brand. I've had great luck making flavored boozes and
some essences, but there's no way I'll ever be able to
duplicate tequila naturally. What brands are people using
to mix tequila?
For those who were put off by difficulty getting ingredients
for making extracts, Penzey's Spice Company has great-
tasting spices in large quantities at good prices, and
Mountain Rose Herbs has a *very* complete selection, and
all of this is availanle online. Very handy!

Here it is Ken, I save it in a Folder. It was from a few days ago in
the New Distillers Group. The first part is Z Bobs Explanation and
