Details

Powerful, lifted aromas of aniseed, cumin and hints of orange zest on the nose. A sweet liqueur, filling the mouth with flavours of caraway and white pepper. Liquorice notes linger on the finish, striking a great balance of sweetness and spice. A wonderful way to end a meal, Mentzendorff Kümmel – served ice cold – is a great digestif.

 

Mentzendorff Kümmel was born out of the creativity of a Dutch aristocrat, the Baron Von Blanckenhagen, and the talents of a young entrepreneur called Ludwig Mentzendorff. Originally Distilled in the remote village of Allash near the Latvian Port of Riga, it quietly grew to such popularity that Ludwig decided to export it to the United Kingdom under his name in 1850.

This unique schnapps-like liqueur made its way to the heart of many people over the years and can still be found in many households. It is now distilled in Saumur, France, true to its original recipe.

Caraway seed is placed into vats with natural alcohol derived from sugar beet. The pot stills are steam heated for 7 hours with steam is passing under the stills at 152oC at 7 bar pressure. At this temperature it takes 20 minutes for the still to start boiling. Once the distillate passes through the cooling pipes it is collected in inert tubs and then double distilled to produce exceptional clarity of flavour. During the first distillation, the hearts and tails are retained, however the unstable heads are disposed of. The hearts and the tails then together undergo a second distillation from which only the hearts are collected. This clear, stable liquid is transferred to stainless steel vats where it is mixed with sugar and reduced to 38% abv with ionised water. It remains in these vats for 2 months prior to bottling. It is then rinsed with a neutral spirit, filled and wax sealed by hand.
