About Liqueurs from Canada

About Liqueurs from Canada
Without question, the most famous spirit from Canada is whiskey. Canadian whiskies, often made from rye, are elegant and lightly spicy, and although they may not rank as highly as single malt scotch, there are some examples that are of exceptional quality. Vodkas are becoming more of a factor in Canada, which should come as no surprise, given the quality of the river and lake water used in production. Yet there are many other notable spirits produced in Canada, ranging from bitters to orange liqueur to aged brandies. The spirits industry in Canada is relatively small, but the products are well worth the search.

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.
