Basil Instinct

Basil Instinct

Blueberries are a delicious berry with infinite potential when it comes to flavour pairing. They are delicious with just about anything, from sweet to savory, bitter and spicy. Basil Instinct takes a fun direction incorporating some sweet and spicy elements found in Top Shelf’s Sweet Reaper Bitters, giving a bit of heat as the blueberry flavour lingers on after a sip. A touch of pepperiness comes to life through the use of some basil leaves, adding a hint of herbaceous mystery to this otherwise sweet, berry-forward libation. Ignore your basic instinct of what flavours should be combined, and discover your inner Basil Instinct.
