Krupnik - Spiced Honey Liqueur
Back in the 1500's, a Lithuanian monk discovered the taste of spiced honey and spirits. Over the centuries, this golden Liqueur was served by Polish and American families to warm their most special guests. Intense spices in a delicate balance with New Hampshire honey and spirits. Aged in small barrels for ultimate smoothness. Traditionally served as a greeting or over dessert, consider taking this along on the next ski trip!
Djinn Spirits is pleased to present an American take on a classic Polish and Lithuanian treat. This deep golden liqueur carries all the robust flavor of the local honey we start with. It is then artfully balanced with spices such as cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, fresh ginger, and vanilla, plus 40% alcohol to make an incredibly intense sipping liqueur. For a final touch, we lightly age the spirit on our oak ex-whiskey barrels.
Krupnik is traditionally served neat, however it mixes well with apple cider, and brandy, for example. And it makes an intensely aromatic toddy when warmed. Try these favorites.
