It is a taste that has traveled the world from the Dutch East Indies, unique for its ability to both add depth and lift the aromas of citrus and chocolate. From the late 17th to 19th century, in an age when âPunchâ was a celebration of all things then exotic â citrus, sugar, and spice, no Punch was without a true Batavia Arrack. In pre-Prohibition America, Batavia Arrack was essential to many now-classic punches and mixed drinks. Batavia Arrack is also today found in boutique European chocolates and cocktails at Bali resorts. Product of Indonesia and Netherlands.
