Origin and history
The forerunners of today's liqueurs were the flavored wines of Roman and Greek antiquity and the peoples of the Near East. The exact origin of the liqueur is difficult to define. However, it can be said that the first drinks that can be called liqueurs in the broadest sense date back to the year 1000. The Friars of the Order of San Romualdo prepared a mixture based on Acquavite and the addition of sweet plum juice to fight malaria.
Herbal liqueurs used to be considered medicinal and were only available in pharmacies and monasteries. Sugar prices were still very high in the 17th century, so only a wealthy section of the population could afford liqueurs. It was only with colonialism that sugar became more affordable and thus gained importance for producers. They experimented with different flavors. The oldest French liqueurs include Bénédictine, Chartreuse and Triple Sec from Combier. fruit liqueurs Fruit liqueurs are made from fruit extracts, alcohol and sugar. As a rule, typical regional fruits are used for this. For example, sea buckthorn liqueur is produced in northern Germany and cherry liqueur in southern Germany. The rhubarb liqueur and the walnut liqueur by Florian Faude, for example, stand for typical regional liqueurs. Liqueurs became increasingly popular in the 18th century. On the one hand, this was due to the fact that the development of a new alembic by Edouard Adam made production much easier and, on the other hand, that liqueur makers (by the way, a profession that could be officially learned in France from the 18th century) via the new sea routes in the colonies could fall back on more and more exotic ingredients. creams Creams also belong to the category of liqueurs, but contain at least 250g of sugar per liter and are therefore not only much sweeter, but also have a viscous viscosity. In this context, however, cream is not a reference to cream. Tempus Fugit Spirits presents a whole series of creams that have not been available in this quality for some time. The Creme de Cacao in particular impresses with an intensity that has never been seen before. The production of liqueurs and creams has a long tradition. They have become indispensable in today's world and have become firmly established. You have to find out for yourself whether a fruit liqueur or a herbal liqueur makes your heart beat faster.
