Agwa Coca Leaf Liqueur 700ml

Distilled and produced in Holland, AGWA de Bolivia is an "Alco-Jolt" made from the Bolivian coca leaf and contains Guarana and ginseng. In 1820 the first Bolivian coca leaf liqueur was manufactured by the De Medici in Bologna, Italy and sold throughout Europe. Rudyard Kipling said the powerful elixir as being made "from the clippings and shavings of angels wings". The product was removed from the market with the banning of cocaine as rudimentary distilling did not remove cocaine. Today bales of Bolivian Coca leaf are shipped under armed guard to Amsterdam where they are distilled and an exact maceration and herbal extraction technique guarantee the removal of the cocaine to standards acceptable to European and US authorities. An extremely distinctive peppery herbal base is then blended with other herbs like guarana & ginseng to balance the taste and augment the effect. Serving Suggestions for Agwa Agwa can be enjoyed in a huge number of combinations, or simply on ice by itself. Try experimenting with these: Cocarana - A measure of AGWA and bottle of coke mixed over Ice with a lemon slice. Cocarita - Supercharge a margherita with Agwa instead of triple sec / cointreau. Lightning - AGWA and Tonic. Mick Martian Martini - AGWA, Milk and dash of Malibu shaken & served as a martini. Piranha - Bitter Lemon & Agwa & slice of lemon.
