GSN Review: Bols Foam

hero-foams-usBols has been making spirits and liqueurs since 1575, making it one of the oldest extant distilleries in the world.  Their line of liqueurs encompasses over 30 different flavors.  They recently debuted three flavored foams in the US.

The molecular mixology craze has died down somewhat, but the addition of these foams certainly makes it easy for bartenders to create some interesting cocktails.  What I like in particular is that everything is self-contained, and does not require purchase of cartridges or specialized equipment.  All you need to do is attach the enclosed pump to the bottle, press a few times, and voila!

Bols Amaretto Foam (48 proof)
Overall: A fairly tasty amaretto, but more sweet than I prefer.  The color of the foam is a light tan.
GSN Rating: B-

Bols Blue Curacao Foam (42 proof)
Overall: A mild curacao flavor with just a hint of orange candy.  The foam is a pretty Robin’s egg blue.
GSN Rating: B-

Bols Cassis Foam (34 proof)
Overall:  Berry flavored and quite sweet.  It makes for an interesting purple foam.
GSN Rating: B+

My only real hesitation about these foams is that the screw-tops on the bottles are very small, so you have to use the 200ml bottles.  Of course once you run out of product, you can fill it with something new and see what happens.  😉
