What is Besk, you ask? Why, it is Sweden's infamous, fragrant wormwood liqueur, of course! It's akin to absinthe and meant to be drunk cold and neat. It will also add an aromatic jolt to any gin-based cocktail if you want to go there. The lovely spices and incense-like musk will play beautifully against a botanical gin. Anise, geranium leaves, and white pepper are the dominant tasting notes here, but it's glittering with forest root flavors. The texture is rich enough to linger over and savor and it's bottled at 100 proof, so a little goes a long way.
