The third spirit that we created is a Falernum. Our Falernum goes back to the roots of Falernum. Falernum (pronounced fah-learn-um) is a sweet syrup used in Caribbean and tropical drinks.
It contains flavors of almond, chili, ginger and/or cloves, and lime. It is used in cocktails in a manner similar to orgeat syrup or can be drunk on the rocks.
Some reports date the origin of falernum back to the 18th century. In the literary magazine All the Year Round, owned by Charles Dickens, Jr. at the time, an unnamed author wrote of Falernum in 1892, describing it as “a curious liqueur composed from rum and lime juice.” The earliest known reference in bar manuals seems to be the 1930s.
