Taking the world one sip at a time – Tubi 60?
This mysterious bottle filled with a cloudy, amber-colored liquid, complete with a plain label that pictured a dove flying off with some sort of fruit. The combination of the simple home made bottle and unfiltered-looking spirit reminds us of homemade lemonade or your neigbour’s homemade liquor you’d receive as an after-dinner gift.
Tubi 60 is an export of Israel. Developed in Israel in a joint effort between master distillers, botanists and Israeli scientists. Huge in Tel Aviv bars, nightclubs, and is often employed as a starting-the-night-out-right shot. Its recipe has also been subject to frenzied speculation, and unsubstantiated rumors suggest some type of hallucinogenic or euphoria-causing herb.
It’s a neutral grain spirit distilled from corn and blended with a maceration of lemons, herbs, spices, tree and flower extract. The impressive lineup of roots, herbs and spices, which includes ginger, turmeric, mint, anise, saffron, cumin and ginseng.
NO ADDED SUGAR
Tube 60 is best served chilled but can be mixed with soda or tonic water as they do in Tel Aviv. Give it a good shake and pour yourself a shot. It had a lemony semi-sweetness taste close to fresh squeezed lemonade & limoncello. The buzzing undercurrent spices: ginger and turmeric in particular makes it very pleasant and healthy. It’s 80 proof and can be used for all kinds of cocktails.
This Tel Aviv Spritz is a fantastic dilution is not syrupy quality, it as a fresh, alcoholic lemonade with a multi-layered herbal kick. The ginger & the herbal effect of the other spices, particularly the turmeric, makes one think you are drinking some delicious, natural juice that just happened to be 40% ABV.
Tubi 60 is not like most things ton the bar. It’s a wonderful thing to get your hands on if you’re looking for an entirely different sort of drinking experience.
