Product Description

With violet color reminiscent of a full moon reflected on a river in the twilight, »The Bitter Truth Violet Liqueur« humbly honors its name. Its deep, purple, romantic haze pre-empts the unique flavor of this fragile flower. Like poetry, aromas whisper sexy sweet nothings of light subtle perfume onto your breath and finish with a dusting of icing sugar. A natural seducer, whose intense southern French flavor is both sensitive and balanced enough to elevate your Aviation to the heavens. »The Bitter Truth Violet Liqueur« is made from wild violet blossoms that grow in the Alps which are then added to the finest grain spirit. It captures the delicate and elegant flavors of this fragile flower in a very impressive way. This authentic violet liqueur makes it possible to mix classic cocktails like The Aviation and The Blue Moon true to the original recipe, as well as modern cocktails such as the Violette Fizz. Tasting Notes: Slightly sweet and very flowery. The violet aroma is very subdued and natural. Product Information: 750ml, 500ml, 50ml, 22% Alcohol by Volume


Varietal: Herb & Spice 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.
