Von Humboldt’s Natur Wasser is crafted from our house-made neutral grain spirit, infused with tamarind, lemon zest and golden brown sugar. Inspired by author Andrea Wulf’s newly-released book, The Invention of Nature, this complex cordial is an ode to Alexander Von Humboldt’s travels through South America. During his travels, Von Humboldt discovered that the locals made a ‘lemonade’ from the Tamarind fruit, which turned unsavory water into a refreshing libation.
Enjoy the fruits of Alexander Von Humboldt’s labor with a Tamarind Margarita.
