More Product Information
Armed with a recipe dating back to the 18th century, our Distillers rose to the challenge of transforming an Eccles cake's distinctively fruity flavours into a festive liqueur.
Traditionally enjoyed slightly warm with a cup of sweet tea alongside a slab of tangy, crumbly Lancashire cheese, there was plenty to consider! To serve up a sip that resembles a slice of the iconic cake, we added nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and orange to the still and left the botanicals to macerate overnight before adding a fragrant raisin and currant syrup to the liquid.
The result is an inviting and warming digestif fit for after-dinner discussions and present wrapping sessions.
For a simple serve, pour 50ml Eccles Cake Liqueur into a Rocks glass filled with ice and serve alongside an Eccles Cake.
The Nose: Raisin, sweet juniper, light spice.
The Palate: Rich warming juniper, sweet poached raisins and currants, warming cinnamon.
The finish: Long candied currant and candied orang peel, soft spice
