The world's favourite Italian liqueur created during the Italian Renaissance as a labour of love Amaretto is enjoyed the world over either on its own, over ice or in a wide variety of cocktails such as the Godfather , or a Cafe Amore . When it comes to choice there really is only one and that's Disaronno - one of the oldest known brands in the world and is made in Saronno, Italy with the same recipe since 1525.
Irish Cream is quite simply a cream liqueur based on Irish whiskey, cream, and other ingredients which can be served on its own, in mixed drinks like the Mudslide or as part of a shot like the world renowned Quick Fuck . Handcrafted using the finest luxurious Irish Cream, The Irishman Irish Cream 100% Irish whiskey with natural flavours of vanilla and toffee, is the award winning superior Irish Cream that we go with and on its own is one to savour.
Creme de Cacao
A traditional sweet-chocolate liqueur with cacao beans from Africa and vanilla from Madagascar you can’t go wrong with De Kuyper Creme De Cacao. Perfect as an after dinner drink, superb anytime as a mixer. For recipes check out White Dove , Creamy Grass Hopper , or the Hot Peppermint Patty
For a Coffee Liqueur, Kahlúa is the definite go-to. Crafted in Mexico, Kahlúa is dense and sweet, with the distinct taste of coffee and rich notes of caramel and vanilla. Kahlúa is perfect to be enjoyed on the rocks, but is also well known as the key ingredient in a number of cocktail recipes including the frozen Mudslide , B-52, and even in deserts like the Tiramisu.
Vermouth is a fortified wine infused with herbs, alcohol, sugar, caramel and water according to specific recipes in Italy and France. The use of vermouth as a modifier has defined many of the classic cocktails, most notably, sweet vermouth in a Manhattan and dry vermouth in a Martini . In addition to creating cocktails, vermouth can also be used in place of white wine in cooking. Dolin is the brand to turn to for Vermouth, specifically the Dolin Rouge and Dolin Dry.
The final essential liqueur for your home bar is an Orange Liqueur, again with all our choices above the end result will always reflect the quality of your choice - Cointreau being the original Triple Sec and sold in over 200 countries worldwide is the no brainer for this . 100% pure, crystal clear liqueur, made from bitter and sweet orange peels perfect for your Magarita
