If a friendly bartender at one of the top-class bars is so delighted by your thyme spirit after one a tasting that he decides to use it in a mixology competition, that’s a sign that all the effort paid off, from optimally harvested, aroma-rich raw material, through to time-consuming manual crushing and special maceration of the tiny thyme leaves, to the especially careful distillation of the sensitive ingredients. This produced an essential oil with the phenolic monoterpenes thymol and carvacrol as its main components. As the key aroma, the green, spicy, slightly flowery and cooling nuances of the thymol are responsible for the characteristic thyme aroma. Up to 250 species belong to the genus Thymus, but only two, including the “vulgaris” used by us, are authorised for use in the production of the pharmaceutical drug “Thymi herba” according to the European pharmacopoeia. The drug was already used in ancient Greece. Nowadays it is accepted as a traditional herbal medicinal product that can help to treat bronchitis and catarrh in the upper airways and inflammation of the mouth mucosa, for example. But now – after this excursion into the world of thyme – let us go back to our spirit made from the same herb. It blends all the complex and Thymus vulgaris aromas with the wonderful restrained sharpness of the alcohol and jazzes up savoury and sweet dishes, such as ice cream, and also drinks. But try adding it to champagne!
