What's a Haskap you ask? Well, if you combine a blueberry and raspberry you'd be in the right ballpark. Often referred to as Blue Honeysuckle, Haskap berries (Lonicera caerulea) are grown all across Canada but mainly in the prairies. We partnered with one of the few growers in Ontario to create this unique liqueur.
After steeping the fresh berries all summer in our 100% Ontario rye grain spirit, we added a touch of lemon verbena from our distillery garden for a hint of fresh citrus. Sweetened using organic cane sugar, batch 1 of our Haskap Liqueur is the perfect balance of sweet fruit and zippy tart finish.
Try using it in place of Cassis in our take on a Kir Royale with a few dashes of orange bitters.
