Laissez Versez's 60 proof liqueurs are a grab bag of flavor profiles. Coconut, strawberry, blueberry and apple pie are in the mix, as well as a cinnamon liqueur (known as Flambeaux), and a liqueur that brings together coffee, chocolate, caramel, cherry and vanilla (known as C'est Bon).
Thanks to Louisiana's abundance of fresh produce and producers, as well as Hampton's dedication to helping small businesses like his own, numerous ingredients found in Laissez Versez's liqueurs come straight from the Pelican State. Strawberries from Ponchatoula. Blueberries from Bogalusa. Coffee from a Baton Rouge micro-roastery.
"Anywhere we can find local is where we're trying to go," Hampton says.
Stop by Laissez Versez to taste some of that local flavor for yourself. The distillery is open for tastings and tours, where you'll learn about the processes that go into making each bottle of whiskey and liquer.
