Clear gold color. Sweet aromas of turkish delight, sweet peach syrup, shortbread cookie, spiced raisin cake, and candied orange peel with a round, crisp, fruity sweet medium body and a warming, layered, medium-long flamed orange, honeysuckle, marmalade, candied ginger, and peppercorns finish. A rich and nuanced liqueur on the dry side that will light up everything from sidecars to margaritas; try it on the rocks.

Flavored Brandy Liqueur

Flavored Brandy Liqueurs are liqueurs using either Cognac or Brandy as a base and flavored mostly commonly with orange–like in the most famous example, Grand Marnier–or other flavorings such as vanilla or coffee and then sweetened with sugar. These should not be confused with Fruit-Flavored Brandies, which are grape Brandies that have been flavored with the extract of another fruit and are much drier.
