Gabriel Boudier challenged the UK's bartenders to create a new liqueur to join their award-winning range - The Wizard Challenge. The 2018 winner was Maria Vieira from East London Liquor Company with her homage to Dijon's other iconic product, mustard. The ingredients are of course led by brown mustard seed from Burgundy, macerated for two weeks in fine alcohol. The supporting cast includes black mustard seed and a touch of pepper, with the balancing sweetness coming from both sugar and honey. This extraordinary and original liqueur achieves the tricky feat of balancing the heat of Dijon mustard with the sweetness required of a liqueur, and Maria's signature serve provides a new take on the class Bloody Mary.
Nose: Gentle spicy Dijon mustard with a slight wine-like note.
Palate: A slight prickle of mustard heat initially, with a touch of white pepper, all of which quickly achieves remarkable balance with the grapey sweetness.
