New Deal Cascara Liqueur 750ml
Handcrafted with Cascara, spirits, and pure cane sugar, our Cascara Liqueur brings a new taste to your cocktail toolkit highlighting the unique flavor of the coffee cherry fruit. This intriguing liqueur begins with raisin, candied fig, and cookie on the nose. It has a delicate, layered body that combines notes of dried apricot, black tea, honey, hay, baking spice, and maple with a long, persistent finish. Excellent as a simple syrup substitute, in dessert cocktails, or enjoyed neat after dinner.
Cascara (“husk” in Spanish) is the fruit of the coffee seed, sometimes called a coffee cherry. Usually, in the coffee production process, the fruit is discarded and only the coffee seed is retained. However, the skins can be dried and made into a rather pleasant-flavored tea. This led us to the idea of experimenting with making the cascara into a liqueur.
