|Rich cashmere brown colour, creamy and dense. Toffee fudge and squidgy caramel scents leap from the glass, with a hint of sweet spice. The mouthfeel is quite light, without any creamy cloying and an excellent level of spirit, giving a product with really fantastic balance, made in a superb style.|

Cream Liqueur is the name given to cream-based members of the liqueur family. The category overlaps with its many other liqueur categories as very few liqueurs will have cream as the key flavoring agent; cream is generally used more for texture and body while cream liqueurs rely upon other flavors to define it.
Cream liqueurs are produced under a different method to other liqueurs. The cream, alcohol and sugar are homogenized together to make sure they bond and don't separate when bottled.
The choice of base spirit used in cream liqueurs is particularly important, but whiskey is used in a number of popular examples, such as in Baileys, Arran and Heather Cream. The reason for this is that cream can dominate other characteristics so a stronger combination of flavors is desirable.... more
Germany has a long and illustrious history of winemaking, a fact that is often overlooked due to a period of decidedly lesser glory during the 1970s and 1980s.
The Romans first established vineyards around Trier on the Mosel river, and by the third century AD plantings had spread to the Mosel and its tributaries. During the Middle Ages the Christian church, particularly the Cistercian and Benedictine monasteries, was very influential in the development of wine growing and in the production of quality wine in Germany. Some of the most famous names in German wine today, such as Schloss Johannisberg and Kloster Eberbach, were established as monasteries and producing wines nearly 900 years ago.
