Copper color. Aromas and flavors of spicy cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, anise, cola, and chicory with a round, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, relaxed finish with notes of caramel, milk chocolate, cashew butter, and ginseng finish. A smooth and creamy spiced liqueur that’s easy to slip into whiskey and rum 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%.
