It was inevitable. We have hemp infused vodka, why not a hemp milk liqueur? BOM BOM Brands, recently introduced Fully Baked, a blend of chocolate chip cookie and brownie flavors with Caribbean rum and Hemp Milk.
Hemp Milk has increasingly become an alternative for vegans and non-vegans alike, as it’s produced from the seeds of the hemp plant. However, hemp milk does not contain the chemical THC, found in marijuana. The very first alcohol product made with Hemp Milk, Fully Baked boasts a 14.2% ABV, a figure just a bit higher than that of RumChata and Bailey’s Almande.
BOM BOM Brands was founded by husband/wife team Kevin Mowers and Eva Maria Janerus. While dating, Mowers wooed Janerus by deconstructing her favorite sweet treat, essentially “melting down” a Mounds bar and incorporating the flavors into a custom cocktail. She enjoyed it so much that she began asking him to make it for her and friends on a regular basis, eventually calling it “BOM BOM” which is slang for “My Sweetie” in Spain.
BOM BOM Fully Baked Hemp Milk Liqueur (14.2% abv)
Visual: Light beige.
Nose: It actually goes back and forth between brownie and chocolate chip cookie, with the latter being slightly more prominent.
Taste: Sweet, but not sugary. Viscous, cream liqueur mouthfeel. The flavor is subdued, but definitely leaning towards chocolate baked good.
Finish: Medium long with a pleasant cocoa finish.
Overall: A nice change of pace from the usual cream liqueurs which tend to be overly sweetened. A bonus is that this is truly dairy-free and gluten-free.
GSN Rating: B+
