Kimberley Bushtucker Liqueurs – A Taste of Broome

  • Posted by Casey on 20 May 2016

When you are presented with the opportunity to try something a little bit different, you have to jump on it in my opinion. Too many people stick to their same old Sauvignon Blanc or Merlot night in and out without really seeing what else is out there. It’s a darn shame if you ask me, because from wine to liqueur to food – there are so many weird and wonderful products on the market and some you may only get to try once in a lifetime.

So when I received a lovely gift from Broome last year, I was over-the-moon to try something so rare and unique. The lovely delivery man dropped off a fairly heavily rectangle box postmarked Broome. My intrigue got the better of me and I had to open it there and then at my desk in the office.

What lay before me were 4 absolutely gorgeous heart shaped glass bottles with a rather interesting looking liquid inside. Knowing who had sent me these treats, I knew the liquid would be some form of alcohol! Being a wine blogger, my liquor normally doesn’t come in this form but as mentioned – I’m always up for trying something new + I knew those heart shaped bottles would make perfect vases after the inside was consumed!
