The story of our spirit “Le Mitis”
We begin the work by fermenting fancy grade molasses and cane sugar. The alcohol distilled from this fermentation is the basis of Mitis and is also the basis of our rum aged in oak barrels.
Once the distillation is complete, we place the alcohol in maceration with carefully selected and roasted Quebec wood such as sugar maple, yellow birch and apple tree, with which we combine French and American white oak to produce a balanced, lively and woody spirit.
Mitis is a tasting spirit but can also be used very well in cocktails.
By tasting it neat, you will find a woody spirit, with a slightly sweet finish of sugar maple caramel. We compare this flavor to the smell when entering a sugar shack. You will also find smoky flavors coming from the roasting of Quebec wood.
In cocktails, it goes perfectly with old fashioned maple syrup.
In the kitchen, you can use Mitis to produce onion soup or by integrating it into the sauce and marinades of BBQ ribs.
