Home > Vanilla Schnapps
Vanilla schnapps - based on vanilla seed pods - is a sweet and very delicious schnapps with distinctive and rich flavours and aromas. It has a beautiful reddish golden colour.
Serve with ice cream, cheese, cheese cake, fruit salad, chocolate, coffee or tea.
Or add a little schnapps to your desserts, dessert sauces and dishes, where you would normally use vanilla.
Another fine combination is vanilla schnapps and strawberry schnapps.

turn your vanilla schnapps into a liqueur.
For best result, use only good quality vanilla seed pods.
The pods must have a rich taste and a strong aroma - have a thick, oily skin - and a lot of tiny seeds.
Both Bourbon, Mexican and Tahitian seed pods are equally good to use. However, their flavours are different, so I suggest you experiment.
Don't use synthetic vanillin. It lacks the subtle flavour of pure, natural vanilla and cannot substitute it.
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 vanilla 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.
