Excellent Spirit for When One Doesn't Feel Like Alcohol (Or Even When One Does)
I've recently gone on a journey to try out as many non-alcoholic spirits as I can get my hands on, both for health reasons, and just to stay abreast of the latest in sippables. And, as could be expected, there's plenty of good, bad, and ugly out there. Of those that I have tried, Amass Riverine is right at the top of the list. A beguiling blend of flavors and aromas, Riverine has a pleasant weight on the tongue (like that of a good vodka or gin), and develops in the mouth as a proper spirit should. Unlike some of the other spirits, it isn't simply "spicy" or "herbal"--there are notes in there that I can't quite place my finger on, in a good way. I have liked it both with a splash of seltzer, or with Fever-Tree tonics (particularly the Aromatic Tonic Water, with Angostura bark extract). And it is even a nice layer to add to a vodka or gin drink, adding a je ne sais quoi to old standards. Amass Riverine should have a prominent place in any liquor (or liquorless) cabinet. Oh, and the bottle is pretty.
