The Bitter Truth Apricot Liqueur

Apricot Liqueur

750 ML


Product Description

Imagine fresh, plump, dewy, yellow skinned apricots; now try the apricot brandy from The Bitter Truth. It has a sweet lightness from the juice and a smidgen of almond on the nose. While on the palate, a creamy dried apricot flavour cuts in first, interrupted by the caramel biscotti mid palate, and rounding off with hot stewed apricots once more. Although its not quite one of your five a day, mix it in a cocktail or over ice, and itll be just what the doctor ordered. »The Bitter Truth Apricot Liqueur« combines the juice of sun-ripened apricots from Klosterneuburg with an apricot schnapps that was distilled from the same fruit. The distinctive fruitiness and reduced sugar content of this apricot liqueur is captivating, and is indispensible in many classic and modern cocktail recipes. Tasting Notes: Sweet and fruity. The aroma of ripe apricots is dominant. In the background, a hint of almond from the apricot pit is noticeable.

Varietal: Apricot Liqueur

Region: Germany

Region Description:

The northernmost wine-producing country in Europe, Germany’s cool climates are mostly suitable for white grapes. The best vineyards are situated along rivers such as the Rhine and the Mosel, which temper the extremes of weather and help the grapes ripen. German wines are named after the places they come from, usually a combination of a village name, a vineyard name, and a grape name. German law makes no distinctions of quality between vineyards. As a result, many wines are mass-produced. Look for the classification QbA or QmP to assure that the grower is reputable. The finest wines are given a Prädikat, which is an indication of the ripeness of the grapes at harvest. There are six levels of Prädikat; in order from the least ripe to the ripest they are Kabinett, Spätlese, Auslese, Beerenauslese (BA) Eiswein, and Trockenbeerenauslese (TBA). At the three highest levels, the amount of sugar in the grapes is so high that the wines are inevitably sweet, but since Prädikat is an indication of the amount of sugar in the grape at harvest (and not in the wine) the lower levels of Prädikat offer no direct hint about the wine’s sweetness.
