What does caraway taste like? Rye bread. Think rye bread or pumpernickel – that’s caraway. When you distill it, it does this magical, alchemical thing. It can really vary how it tastes in a spirit, but the easiest association is rye bread. When you mix it with mint or with citrus, it’s absolutely delicious. It’s very savory. If you’re cocktailing with an aquavit you can do something very savory like a Bloody Mary or a dirty Martini. But you can pick up on the other notes and do something sweet as well. It’s surprisingly versatile.
