The Maca Ginseng Elixir was developed as a special edition for DIE ZEIT, where it was distributed exclusively for a few weeks. This handmade Amaro with 35%vol is the evolution of the Ginseng Elixir, which has been expanded with the nutty maca roots. Maca roots are also known as Peru Ginseng and are native to the upper altitudes of the Peruvian Andes. Due to the extreme climatic conditions, over the centuries they became robust roots with high resistance. Since time immemorial, they have been used both as food and as a medicinal plant.
With the lettering on the gift box “Ad Multos Annos“(To many years) this special feature of both roots (Maca & Ginseng) is underlined.
The Maca Ginseng Elixir is powerful and finely balanced on the tongue. Its note is bitter-sweet and lies in the middle of these dimensions of taste. The long finish is underlined by a nutty nuance.
After several weeks of maturation, maca and ginseng roots, selected tinctures and essences, among others. from gentian, cinchona bark, ginger rhizome, cardamom, citric root, cloves, bitter orange peel, juniper berries, centaury, cinnamon bark, galangal rhizome, camphor, lavender, valerian, citronella, angelica root and a touch of saffron have combined to form the balanced heart of the elixir.
The origin, purity and content (e.g. bitter substances, essential oils) of all herbs are precisely defined here. The standardized high standards of the roots, barks and flowers gently macerated in the pharmacy are even certified according to German Pharmacopoeia quality.
It is suitable pure (as a digestif), with a few ice cubes (as an aperitif) or as a base of drinks e.g. with tonic or in place of Campari in Negroni. It is important to “roule” slowly – as in a wine tasting – in the front of the mouth.
