Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur
Aroma: light and fragrant, while the note of ginger keeps building up.
Flavor: thick mouthfeel, with light notes of ginger and bitterness from the herbs. It rounds up with the note of vanilla and the sweetness of honey melts in gradually. Short finish.
A liqueur is an alcoholic beverage made from a distilled spirit that has been flavored with fruit, cream, herbs, spices, flowers or nuts and bottled with added sugar or other sweetener (such as high-fructose corn syrup). Liqueurs are typically quite sweet; they are usually not aged for long after the ingredients are mixed, but may have resting periods during their production to allow flavors to mingle.In the United States and Canada, where spirits are often called "liquor" (pronounced /ˈlɪkər/, with stress on the first rather than the second syllable), there is often confusion over liqueurs and liquors, especially as many spirits today are available in flavored form (e.g. flavored vodka). Most liqueurs have a lower alcohol content (15–30% ABV) than spirits, but some contain as much as 55% ABV.
In parts of the United States and Canada, liqueurs may also be called cordials or schnapps, while in parts of the Commonwealth of Nations, cordial means a concentrated non-alcoholic fruit syrup that is diluted to taste and consumed as a non-carbonated soft drink. In Germany and Scandinavia, schnapps means a form of brandy or aquavit.
