It all started about 15 years ago with the love of tiki cocktails. The more that Matt learned the more excited he got. He took his writing experience and turned it into the Cocktail Wonk Blog. For Matt it’s the flavor, the run and the exotic fruits that make the tiki cocktails appealing to him. Beach Bum Berry’s, Sippin’ Safari Book helped all of this to click into place for him. This episode highlights history, rum, tiki and an overall passion for being a Wonk.

Episode 146 – Barrow’s Intense Ginger – Josh Morton

This episode features ⁠Josh Morton⁠ of Barrow’s Intense Ginger.

Josh started making the ginger liqueur in his kitchen for his friends ten years before it became a product that he sold. As he calls it, “A Happy Accident”. His inspiration was lemon cello that he enjoyed during his visit to Italy. Josh was disappointed by what he drank when he returned to the United States. A chef friend gave him some tips and tricks on how to make the lemon cello the correct way. With each experimental batch he refined the recipe. Once ginger was added it became clear that he was on to something special. Each time he made it he added more ginger and less lemon. What exists today is a delicious liqueur that is versatile and simply amazing. Don’t take our word for it… pick up a bottle today and experience Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur for yourself.
