ALL ABOUT LIQUEUR

The terms liqueur and liquor get confused often since they sound so similar, but their differences make them easy to tell apart. Liquors don’t taste sweet despite being produced with sugar (rum, tequila, gin, etc.) and are also not viscous liquids. Liqueur, on the other hand, refers to a thick, syrupy alcoholic beverage produced by distilling spirits from fruit preparation and other flavoring agents, which tastes significantly sweeter than most other types of alcohol due to its added sugar content. Liqueurs come served neat or mixed into cocktails, as after-dinner drinks, or as a shot before or after a meal. They compliment meals nicely and bring sweet, new flavors into the mix. Brewers typically flavored liqueurs with herbs, spices, fruits, creams or nuts to give them an added level of complexity.

History

Liqueur's history dates back to the thirteenth century, when an alchemist by the name Catalan Arnold de Vila Nova wrote down his recipes for aquae vitae, the water of life. He and other monks and alchemists experimented with various spirits, herbs, fruits and spices to create soothing drinks for medicinal purposes. The drink gets its name from the latin word liquefacere, meaning to melt or dissolve. The latin origin describes the process of letting those spices and herbs dissolve into brandy or whiskeys, which are often the base of liqueurs. By the fourteenth century, liqueurs became popular in Italy and France and were mostly produced by monastic orders and alchemists. Commercially, it gained popularity in the sixteenth century, when distilleries in the Netherlands and Germany began creating it on larger scales, and the drink gained traction worldwide. Today's modern versions evolved from these recipes but still carry on some traditional traditions by using natural ingredients that provide complex flavors to spice up any occasion!

How Liqueur is Made

Liqueurs typically derive from either grain alcohol or brandy (sometimes both) that has been infused with various flavors. The process begins by macerating (steeping) the ingredients in ethanol for several days until it takes on the level of flavors desired before filtering out any solids that may remain. Then the liqueur is either bottled directly or further diluted with additional ethanol and/or water before being sweetened with sugar syrup. Finally, the finished product is aged in oak barrels for anywhere between several months up to several years before it is ready to be enjoyed.

How to Drink Liqueur

Enjoying a liqueur can be an extremely varied experience, depending on the type of drink and desired temperature. For example, Limoncello and Jagermeister most commonly come served while freezing cold, but other types may offer a delightful warm punch when diluted in hot water. Regardless, enjoying a liqueur requires careful consideration regarding temperature as well as individual taste and flavor profile, which can help determine just how much ice or heat will enhance its nuances.
