Dark brown color. Aromas and flavors of candied fennel seeds, espresso, tarragon, black pepper, and cereal grains with a chewy, vibrant, light-to-medium body and a tingling, layered, long finish that shows touches of spiced coffee, molasses, and hits of roasted nuts. An herbaceous and distinctive Coffee Liqueur that offers something deliciously different to the coffee or absinthe lover.

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%.
