If you are looking for a treat to help you get through the cool evenings before summer arrives, then nothing will be better than one of our Toffee Liqueurs. Produced in the Cornish Tamar Valley, each of our flavoured liqueurs has been carefully handcrafted with lots of love and locally sourced natural ingredients wherever possible. Keep reading to find out more about our liqueurs.
The word liqueur derives from the Latin ‘liquifacere’ which simply means to dissolve or melt. Liqueurs are alcoholic beverages produced from plain spirits and then flavoured and sweetened. They can be enjoyed on their own, with a mixer or as part of a cocktail. Liqueurs can be traced back as early as the 13th century and with an ever-increasing variety of flavours now available, they have become increasingly popular today.
A Toffee Liqueur is a liqueur that has been dominantly flavoured with toffee or caramel. This flavour is produced by heating sugar and butter to create a decadently sweet and rich flavour and when added to a spirit to create a liqueur, it provides an alcoholic beverage that can be served alone or alongside or as a dessert.
We are extremely proud of our Smooth Toffee and Rich Caramel Vodka Liqueur especially as it won the Taste of the West Silver Award in 2019. It features a smooth, rich and decadent flavour that has sweet, deep notes of dark brown sugar and a lingering subtle hint of caramel and butter. It makes a wonderful addition to your coffee, can be added to a cocktail or served over ice-cream for an adults only dessert.
Another of our award winners, our Toffee Apple Rum Liqueur combines the finest dark Caribbean rum with the creamy taste of toffee and the clean crispness of green apple to create a truly nostalgic flavour that will remind you of days at the funfair. This comforting beverage is sure to bring you warmth, can be added to mulled cider for an extra kick or why not enhance your fruit cake with a glug of this luxurious liquid.
Not quite toffee flavoured, but caramel is similar right? This popular flavour combination pairs Cornish Sea Salt with a sweet and soft caramel flavour wrapped up in a smooth Caribbean rum. This wonderful flavour is compelling and whilst it is heavenly on its own we love it in a hot chocolate.
As we may have mentioned earlier, all of our toffee liqueurs make a hearty addition to coffee or even hot chocolate. They can be enjoyed poured over ice cream, added to a fruit cake recipe or simply on their own. However, if you are looking for something a little more experimental, then take a look at these Toffee Liqueur cocktail ideas:
Pour the liqueur into a champagne flute or coupe glass and top with chilled bubbles of your choice. Gently stir to combine the two liquids, serve with apple slices and toffee sauce if you wish.
Combine all ingredients and shake in a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice. Strain into a glass over ice and garnish with grapefruit slices.
This cocktail is sure to blow your socks off, simply combine all ingredients and serve over ice.
