Liqueurs are spirit based drinks to which flavors are added, usually by infusion, and are often enhanced by sweetening. Sometimes spirits are flavored but unflavored liqueurs do not exist; they are simply known as spirits. Liqueurs are also known as cordials in the United Kingdom and Australia. In the Scandinavian and Germanic speaking countries liqueurs and spirits are commonly known as aquavits, schnapps (schnapps, snaps), or washers; in eastern Baltic and Slavic countries as vodkas; and, in French speaking counties as eau de vies and brandies.
Liqueur making is as old as civilization itself. In fact, the recipes and techniques used have not changed much since the Middle Ages. Carefully selected seeds, herbs, fruits and essential oils are macerated or distilled and then fortified with alcohol and sweetened. Our essences are made in Northern Europe where the ‘old world’ style of extraction is a much treasured art.
These are all natural 100% European essences. Each bottle flavors 750 ml of natural fermented Turbo Yeast or other alcohol base. Our new European recipes and essences include natural nut, fruit and/or grain oils, something competitive products do not use. The result, “a superior finished product”.
You can also use Liquor Quick Essences to flavor and enhance all types of foods.
