Fair Kumquat Liqueur: A Burst of Sunshine in Every Sip (The General Wine Co. Tasting Notes)


Calling all citrus lovers! If you're looking for a unique and delightful liqueur to add a touch of sunshine to your cocktails or enjoy neat, then look no further than Fair Kumquat Liqueur. This award-winning spirit, available at The General Wine Co., is crafted with Fairtrade kumquats, offering a taste sensation that's both refreshing and complex.

What is Kumquat?

The kumquat, a citrus fruit native to Southeast Asia, is a true gem. Unlike its larger cousins like oranges and grapefruits, kumquats boast an edible rind, making them a delightful treat to be enjoyed whole. Fair Kumquat Liqueur captures the essence of this vibrant fruit, creating a liqueur that's bursting with flavour.

Tasting Notes

Appearance:  Crystal clear, showcasing the purity of the ingredients.

Nose:  The first impression is a delightful rush of blood orange, reminiscent of freshly squeezed juice. Hints of mandarin and orange blossom peek through, adding a touch of floral elegance.

Palate:  The initial sip delivers a burst of sweet and tangy citrus flavours, with the kumquat taking centre stage. The liqueur is surprisingly well-balanced, with a smooth texture that belies its subtle acidity. The sweetness is perfectly restrained, allowing the natural fruit flavours to shine through. As the liqueur lingers on the palate, a hint of spice emerges, adding a touch of complexity.

Finish:  The finish is clean and refreshing, leaving you wanting another sip.
