SAN FRANCISCO — Tempus Fugit Spirits has launched a new historical revitalization with a 19th Century-style Crème de Banane. Imported by Hotaling & Co., Tempus Fugit’s Crème de Banane brings back the original flavors and aromas of historically complex and delicious banana liqueurs.
Crème de Banane first emerged in the mid-19th Century when the banana was revered as a rare and exotic fruit that was brought by ship from distant colonies. By the 20th Century, the banana had become one of the most widely consumed fruits in the world. Tempus Fugit’s Crème de Banane is a versatile spirit and cocktail modifier that delivers the ripe and complex flavors of banana that numerous bartenders have described as liquid banana bread, with caramelized flavors reminiscent of the Southern dessert Bananas Foster. Free from extracts, flavorings and artificial colorings, Tempus Fugit’s Crème de Banane has received the highest rating of 5-Stars from F. Paul Pacult’s prestigious Spirit Journal and has resurrected this quintessential crème liquor that K&L Wine Merchants has dubbed a modern classic that “sets the bar for the category in terms of flavor, authenticity and quality.”

26% ABV, 750ml, $41.99 SRP
Tempus Fugit’s Crème de Banane is based on 19th-Century protocols, bringing back the original flavors and aromas of historically delicious banana liquors. Perfectly ripened bananas are small-batch distilled to extract the rich banana flavor. The golden amber color is extracted from mature bananas and completely natural. Crème de Banane is the perfect complement to everyone’s favorite Tiki cocktail and any classic cocktail requiring an authentic historic-style Crème de Banane.

About Hotaling & Co. (pronounced ho-de-ling)
Hotaling & Co., formerly Anchor Distilling Company, is an importer and distiller of fine spirits headquartered in San Francisco. Originally established in 1993 by beverage visionary Fritz Maytag, fueled by the bold realization that there were no pot-distilled whiskies or high-end craft gins being made legally in America at the time. As a result, Anchor Distilling Company is credited with creating America’s first craft whiskey (Old Potrero) and gin (Junípero Gin) after Prohibition. In 2010, Fritz Maytag retired and sold Anchor Distilling Company to a business partnership that included Tony Foglio and London’s oldest wine and spirit merchant Berry Bros. & Rudd. With the sale, Anchor Distilling Company expanded beyond production on Potrero Hill to incorporate importing a collection of super-premium craft spirits from around the world. Today, newly named Hotaling & Co. has earned a nationwide reputation for its curated portfolio of premium craft spirits imported into the U.S. that is made up of over 300 specialty products from 23 countries. The Hotaling name remains a part of San Francisco drinking culture as the distillery celebrates 25 years of production – a proud tradition that will continue into the future alongside the other core business pillars: importing and consumer education. www.HotalingandCo.com
