Tequilcello Limon Tequila Liqueur

Minutely hazy golden straw color. Aromas and flavors of gentian and pine sap, spicy roasted lemon marmalade, wormwood tea and linseed, and grapefruit peel with a glycerous, vibrant, fruity sweet medium body and a graceful, distinctive, very long lemon blossom honey and alpine herbs finish. A wonderfully pure and flavorful three-dimensional lemon liqueur.

Minutely hazy golden amber color. Aromas of tropical oranges, polished fine furniture, orange sponge cakes, and steen’s syrup with a round, crisp, very sweet full body and a smooth, intriguing, medium-long cinnamon sticks, caramel, potpourri, and honey finish. A smooth and dreamy liqueur for any cocktail or on the rocks; try with cigars.

A lovely orange liqueur with a warming brandy character.
