Situated inside a 500 square-foot space along the Brooklyn waterfront and just a few feet above a cobblestone road, Josh Morton is blending another batch of Barrow's Intense Ginger Liqueur. "I worked on the recipe for years, and finally perfected it when I was working from my loft on Barrow Street in Manhattan," says Morton. "That's how we got the name."

Each batch of Barrow's Intense Ginger Liqueur (and so far, there have only been 3) requires nearly 30 pounds of fresh ginger. Morton sources the ginger from a local produce market down the street in Brooklyn before cleaning, peeling and preparing it for its intense journey. "It takes a half day just to get the ginger ready," he says. Once the ginger has been prepared, it is steeped in fresh spirits derived from cane sugar for nearly a month.

"That's all you really need to know," says Morton. "We make our liqueur with incredibly fresh ginger. We don't use chemicals or extracts of any kind " just lots and lots of fresh ginger." As a result, Barrow's Intense Ginger Liqueur has bold aroma that is sweet and spicy. The initial flavor is surprisingly subtle and leads to intense notes of spicy ginger, that linger on the finish.

"We don't filter Barrow's, so it has a slightly cloudy color and some sediment, which add to its complexity and flavor," Morton says. After the ginger has been infused in the cane spirits for nearly a month, Morton fills, labels and numbers each bottle by hand.

Barrow's Intense Ginger Liqueur is gluten-free and certified kosher. "Everyone keeps asking me what other flavors we plan on making," Morton says. "My response is, do one thing and do it really, really well." Enjoy a well-made ginger liqueur, either on its own or in a cocktail, today!

Bold sweet and spicy aroma. Initial flavor is subtle and leads to intense notes of spicy ginger, which linger on the finish.
