Episode 34 features a spirit that surprised me and brought me joy! Kleiner Feigling fig liqueur. Sold in small 20 ml bottles at 20% ABV or 40 Proof, they're meant for enjoying in social settings, and being sold in multipacks, you're encouraged to drink more than one.

Thanks to Niche Import Co. for providing the spirits for the tasting!

Enjoy this episode with a shot of Kleiner Feigling!
