Liqueur is an aromatic alcoholic beverage made from distilled spirit flavoured with herbs, fruits, spices or even nuts. The word originates from the Latin word liquor (meaning liquid).
Due to its relatively high sugar content (at least 100 grams per litre), it is most often described as a ladies’ drink, although in practice this is not entirely true, as it is also enjoyed by men. It is quite a strong drink with an alcohol content of 15 and all the way up to 40 percent.
Sugar, alcohol and the (not) ageing of liqueurs
must contain at least 100 grams of sugar per litre and have at least a 15% alcohol content. As a rule, liqueurs are not aged, they only steep long enough for the added fruits, nuts and/or herbs to release their aroma.
Chartreuse liqueur – a closely guarded secret
The history of liqueur production dates back to the 13th century. In Italy, they were first produced by monks, who began steeping medicinal herbs in liqueurs. One of the oldest liqueurs, Chartreuse, contains as many as 130 different herbs and roots, and its recipe is carefully guarded by three monks.
The ancestor of today’s liqueur, however, is considered to be aromatised wine from Roman and Greek antiquity. Due to high sugar prices, the consumption of liqueur was a privilege of the wealthier classes of society, but when sugar also became available to lower classes, other liqueurs saw the light of day: from fruit and herbal to cream and coffee liqueurs.
Liqueurs are also produced in Slovenia, most often from fruit brandy, which has the most neutral taste and complements well with the added ingredients.
The most popular liqueur in Slovenia is blueberry liqueur. It is traditionally made from fruit brandy with added wild blueberries and sugar.
So in addition to sugar or honey, liqueurs can contain fruit juices and plant extracts (mint, gentian, anise, wormwood) or herbal essential oils, seeds, flowers, fruits (raspberries, blackberries, citrus fruits, cherries, etc.) and so on. There are also liqueurs with other flavourings, offering different aromatic notes, such as coffee, chocolate, etc., and even terrano liqueur! Have you ever tried this excellent drink?
The technology of liqueur production is complex, as the water must be demineralised. The alcohol content is also closely monitored, as it must be between 7 and 40%, but in certain cases it can go up to 60%. Unless otherwise specified for a particular type of liqueur, sugar may be partially replaced by starch syrup in the production of liqueurs.
How to categorise liqueurs?
Liqueurs are most easily categorised by type and alcohol content:
● fruit (15–40% alcohol)
● sweet herbal (25–30% alcohol)
● bitter (5–40% alcohol)
● fruit-herbal-spiced (15–40% alcohol)
● cream (15–25% alcohol)
What kind of glasses are suitable for liqueur?
Liqueur is usually served in stemmed spirit glasses. Since liqueurs are very aromatic, there is no need to use glasses with a narrow opening.
