Opaque creamy straw yellow color. Inviting aromas and flavors of lemon chiffon cake, buttercream, vanilla custard, and lemon bar with a creamy, vibrant, very sweet full body and a graceful, medium-length finish with accents of lemon shortbread cookies and whipped cream finish. A decadent, creamy lemon liqueur that’s easy to love.

Cream Liqueur, quite simply is a liqueur that has dairy cream added to a liquor. The most famous examples come from Ireland; they have a base of Irish whiskey; there are also version from Scotland, Canada, the US and several other countries.

Most of these cream liqueurs are in the 14% to 17% alcoholic range and are medium-sweet with flavors such as nougat, praline and chocolate. Most are served over the rocks. The category took off in the 1970s and although not as wildly popular today, it has remained strong.
