Fruit liqueur: fruits of labour and history
Fruit liqueur production is an ancient tradition and based on the simple principle that anything containing sugar may be fermented to produce alcohol. Historically, windfall fruit and discarded fruits were used so as not to let them go to waste, especially after economic downturn brought about by World War I. After economic upturn, the demand for all fruit liqueurs proceeded to rise. In today’s fruit liqueur production distillation is comprised of two rounds. The initial round produces three parts: the head, which is not drinkable, the heart that contains the potable alcohol, meaning it is drinkable, and lastly the tail which contains a higher alcohol level and is also not drinkable. The heart is therefore used in final distillation to create a pure product with a strong aroma and lingering taste that has a high alcohol content.
