A liqueur is a spirit which contains at least 100 grammes of sugar per litre. Moreover, this sugar content is what legally designates a liqueur according to European legislation. A liqueur is basically made with alcohol to which fruit, grains, spices and plants or dairy products have been added.
A liqueur may be obtained through two techniques: maceration and infusion.
Most liqueurs are made with white Eau de Vie which is then macerated with agricultural products. This technique allows the alcohol, fruit, plants, grains, spices, and dairy products to mix in order to create a fluid and tasty alcoholic drink.
In the Middle Ages, medicinal qualities were attributed to the first liqueurs. The first productions of liqueur were made with herb wine, borage, lemon balm, spices, quince, rosemary, red cabbage, nettles, horseradish, euphraisia, dill, coriander, camomile, spices, campanula, sage, fennel, aniseed, couch grass, thistle or even cloves. Some solutions of liqueur were then used to heal wounds or even eyes, thanks to the complementary action of the alcohol and the plants.
It must be remembered that the first liqueurs that we know today were obtained through a still. This equipment was mainly used in French monasteries and by the Jesuits in Verona, Italy. Nowadays liqueurs are consumed all over the world.
Through time, medicinal liqueurs became a remedy liqueur to help digestion. Liqueurs then became a drink supposed to help digestion.
Liqueurs when they contain more than 250 grammes of sugar per litre are also called creams. Like crème de cassis for example, but this cream remains a liqueur and therefore a spirit.
Liqueurs can be divided into 3 categories:
Liqueurs made with coffee grains, cumin, aniseed, cloves, coriander or made with peel and roots like orange, lemon, mandarin, and gentian.
Liqueurs made with plants like verbena, lime, mint, violet, jasmine, or rose.
Liqueurs made with fruit: berries or stones like orange, cherry, banana, strawberry, apricot, redcurrant, blackcurrant, juniper berries, or cranberries.
Liqueurs are not usually vintage, but it is possible to find liqueurs by their year of production.
