Esprit de Figues launched by Think Spirits

Patrick Borg, owner of Think Spirits, has launched a fig liqueur, Espirit de Figues, from his 150 year old family distillery in Burgundy.

Crafted and bottled at a 150-year-old family distillery in Burgundy, fresh Violette de Bordeaux figs grown in Morocco are infused in French beet spirit
for three months.

The colour of the liquid is derived from the skins of the Violette de Bordeax figs. Esprit de Figues is a rich dark purple colour in the bottle and softens to a pale mauve when poured.

Patrick Borg, Think Spirits founder, says: “After seven long years of research, developing and finally delivering this beautiful fresh fig liqueur we are thrilled to announce Esprit de Figues is now available through Mangrove in the UK.”

Nick Gillett, managing director of Mangrove, comments: “Esprit de Figues amplifies Mangrove’s liqueur offering with its craftmanship, unyielding quality and luxury. The sumptuous packaging is inviting, accompanied by the liquid’s purity of fresh fig flavour and colour, enhancing cocktail occasions.“
