Nestled amidst the rolling hills of the Cotswolds, the Cotswolds Distillery crafts a cream liqueur that embodies the region's spirit. Made with their new-make single malt spirit and fresh Irish cream, this delightful drink offers a smooth, luxurious experience for any occasion.

This detailed tasting note explores the Cotswolds Distillery Cream Liqueur, delving into its aroma, flavour profile, and ideal serving suggestions.

A Rich and Silky First Impression

Pouring a glass of Cotswolds Cream Liqueur reveals a beautiful light golden colour. As you swirl it, the liqueur boasts a remarkable viscosity, clinging to the glass and forming slow-moving legs – a testament to its rich and creamy texture.

Aromatic Delights: Vanilla, Butterscotch, and a Hint of Malt

On the nose, the Cotswolds Cream Liqueur presents a delightful symphony of aromas. The star of the show is undeniable – a wave of sweet, creamy vanilla fills your senses. This is complemented by warm notes of butterscotch, adding a touch of caramel sweetness. Beneath these primary aromas lies a subtle hint of malt, hinting at the new-make single malt spirit used in its creation. The overall impression is one of luxurious indulgence, inviting you to take a sip and explore further.

A Smooth and Creamy Journey on the Palate

The first sip of Cotswolds Cream Liqueur confirms the promise of its aroma. The texture is incredibly smooth and silky, coating your tongue in a luxurious blanket of cream. The sweetness is well-balanced, with the vanilla flavour leading the charge. Hints of butterscotch emerge alongside the vanilla, adding a touch of complexity. The underlying malt character peeks through subtly, providing a pleasant warmth and a subtle grainy texture that cuts through the richness. The finish is smooth and creamy, leaving a lingering sweetness of vanilla and butterscotch on the palate.

Serving Suggestions to Delight Your Senses

The Cotswolds Cream Liqueur is a versatile drink that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Here are some suggestions to unlock its full potential:

  • Straight Up:  For the purest experience, enjoy Cotswolds Cream Liqueur chilled, neat. Serve it in a small liqueur glass or a chilled coupe glass. The slight chill accentuates the creaminess and allows the delicate flavours to shine.
  • On the Rocks:  For a refreshing twist, serve Cotswolds Cream Liqueur over ice. The ice helps to melt the liqueur slightly, creating a more relaxed drinking experience. It's a perfect way to enjoy the drink on a warm evening.
  • Coffee Companion:  Transform your everyday coffee into a luxurious treat by adding a splash of Cotswolds Cream Liqueur. The vanilla and butterscotch flavours complement the coffee beautifully, creating a creamy and decadent after-dinner drink.
  • Cocktail Creations:  Cotswolds Cream Liqueur can also be used to create delightful cocktails. Here are two recipe ideas to get you started:
    • The Cotswold White Russian: Combine 2 parts Cotswolds Cream Liqueur, 1 part vodka, and a splash of coffee liqueur in a rocks glass filled with ice. Stir gently and garnish with a coffee bean.
    • The Cotswold Bramble: Muddle a handful of blackberries in a shaker. Add 2 parts Cotswolds Cream Liqueur, 1 part gin, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a blackberry.

Food Pairings to Elevate Your Experience

Cotswolds Cream Liqueur pairs beautifully with a variety of desserts. Here are some suggestions:

  • Fruit-Based Desserts: The creaminess of the liqueur complements the sweetness and tartness of fruit-based desserts like apple pie, pear crumble, or a summer berry pavlova.
  • Chocolate Delights: The rich chocolate notes in desserts like brownies, chocolate mousse, or a flourless chocolate cake find a perfect partner in the Cotswolds Cream Liqueur. The creaminess of the liqueur cuts through the richness of the chocolate, creating a delightful balance.
  • Cheese Board Companion:  Surprise your guests by offering Cotswolds Cream Liqueur alongside a selection of cheeses. The creaminess of the liqueur pairs well with strong cheeses like blue cheese or a mature cheddar.

In Conclusion: A Taste of the Cotswolds

The Cotswolds Distillery Cream Liqueur is a luxurious and delightful treat. Its smooth texture, rich flavours, and versatility make it a welcome addition to any drinks cabinet. Whether enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or incorporated into cocktails and desserts, this cream liqueur offers a taste of the Cotswolds and a moment of pure indulgence.
