Rich fruity eau de vie.
Just like it’s aroma the Rosa Huandoy is a rich and fruity eau de vie that wouldn’t be out of place in Alsace.
This is something akin to a pechuga where Aqara puts strawberries in a basket over the still. Strawberries seem like one of the more expensive fruits to use for a pechuga style spirit but AQARA founder Marco Suarez told me that they are a huge crop locally. But this is acres away from a strawberry flavored spirit, it comes across as a fruity eau de vie. Suarez says that is because it is steam roasted.
