Brilliant gold color. Aromas of honey, tennis ball, beeswax candle, dried orange, and butter with an oily, soft, cloying fat body and a smooth, rapid clover honey, rock candy, and toasted marshmallow finish. A rich liqueur to add body and sweetness to cocktails.

Herb/spice liqueurs are alcoholic beverages that contain added flavor from the addition of spices, herbs, barks or roots. There are many famous herbal liqueurs in Europe, some of them produced by monks or other religious orders; some of these contain more than 100 herbs as part of the recipes!

These liqueurs are most often served neat, although some are mixed with water and/or ice. Most have an alcoholic range between 35%-55%.
