Filtration and Storage
How to adjust Taste and Flavours of your Vodka Infusion
Create Your Own Unique Schnapps Blends
You can create blends with your favourite flavours, blends with health benefits, blends to help you sleep, blends to cheer you up, blends for cooking purposes, blends for serving with meals - and blends to give away as personalized unique gifts presented in beautiful bottles or added to gift baskets.
Infused in vodka you get a very aromatic schnapps with a sweet, characteristic, light pungent and warming taste.
Serve with curries, duck, chicken, fish, sausages, rice, heavy meat dishes, desserts, and cakes.
Excellent as after-dinner drink or added to coffee or tea.
Or use the schnapps in breads, cakes, desserts, pies, biscuits, pastries, jams, marmalades, jellies, meat and rice dishes, and other dishes where you would normally use cardamom.
Blends very well with other schnappses and is often used to enhance taste and flavours of weak-flavoured schnappses and liqueurs.
It's mainly used to blend with other schnappses, or used in desserts, marmalades, ice creams, fruit salads, apple pies, marinades, soups, fish and meat sauces, pork dishes, tea, and mulled wine.
It's mainly used to blend with other schnappses, or used in marinades, pickles, soups, curries, ratatouille, fish and meat dishes, stews, and sauces.
Liquorice (licorice) Schnapps
In fact, a little liquorice is an important flavouring in many commercially produced spirits.
But certainly, you can also enjoy it on its own. It has a nice, sweetish and strong taste and flavours.
Enjoy on its own - or serve with pie, ice cream, fruit salad, dessert, chicken, cheese and cheese cake.
Or add it to marmalade, jam, jelly, chutney and fruit sauce.
Blends well with many other schnappses.
The colour is light to dark golden.
Can be served with a variety of dishes, including curries, stews, chicken, pork, fish, shellfish, salads, oriental foods, desserts, cheese and cheese cakes.
Or use the schnapps in cookies, breads, cakes, salad dressings, dips and sauces, or any other dish where you would normally use raisins.
Blends very well with other schnappses.
Also, a little raisin schnapps is excellent to enhance flavours of other schnappses - or even save a schnapps you are not satisfied with.
Sea Wormwood Schnapps
It's a highly enjoyable schnapps with a pleasant bitter, aromatic and characteristic taste and wonderful, unique flavours. The colour is pale green.
Serve with seafoods, smoked and marinated herrings, smoked salmons, soups, stews, or cold dishes such as Danish smorgasbord.
Excellent as appetizer and after-dinner drink.
All the best,
