Home > Southernwood Schnapps
Southernwood schnapps - based on fresh, young southernwood leaves - is highly popular here in Denmark and rest of Scandinavia. It has a mild, very aromatic and slightly bitter taste and a wonderful flavour.
The colour is pale green changing to pale brown after some storage.
The schnapps goes extremely well with caviar, crayfish, gravlax, salmon, herring, cured and smoked fish, lamb, poultry and cheese.
Excellent as after-dinner drink. Or just on its own.

Also, see how you can easily...
turn your southernwood schnapps into a liqueur.
Use fresh, young southernwood leaves. Pick them during the summer. You can freeze the leaves for later use. Just remember to defrost them in the vodka.
You can serve your southernwood schnapps after it has settled for a couple of days.
But it gets even better if you store (age) it for a couple of weeks or months - in a dark place at room temperature. Taste it to find out.
Note: If for some reason you are not satisfied with your infusion, there are ways to adjust both taste and flavours - click here to see how.
Serve your southernwood schnapps at room temperature in suitable glasses. And remember to keep your schnapps bottle tightly closed and in a dark place before and between servings.
