Midori Melon Liqueur

Midori Melon Liqueur was created by Suntory – a Japan-based spirits and soft drinks company. They produce their products in collaboration with several international production facilities. This particular bottle was produced by Fielding & Jones, LTD in Chicago. The original melon liqueur was created by Shinjiro Torii, and released in Japan under a different product name in 1964. It is made using two different varieties of rare Japanese muskmelon. The distinctive bright green coloring is artificially added, as the melon insides are actually orange. In 1978, the melon liqueur was released in the U.S. as Midori Melon Liqueur. The recipe was updated […]

Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur

Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur is produced by Luxardo – an Italy-based spirits producer originally founded in Zara, Dalmatia in 1821. They produce a variety of spirits including liqueurs, aperitifs, and more. After World War II left much of Zara in ruins, the distillery was rebuilt in Torreglia, Italy in 1947. A family-owned company each step of the way, it is now being run by the seventh generation of Luxardos. This particular bottle of Maraschino liqueur is modeled after a Dalmatian liqueur called rosolio maraschino, which was made in convents and monasteries as early as the medieval period. Luxardo Maraschino is made from marasca […]

Rounded bottle of Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur sitting on a wooden table

Chambord Liqueur

Chambord Liqueur is produced at La Sistiere Château in the Loire Valley region of France. Although this liqueur is modeled after a raspberry liqueur that was popular in the region during the late 1600’s, the Chambord brand was only founded in 1982.

First, the juices are extracted from the blackberries, raspberries, and blackcurrants. These juices then go through a 4-week infusion process where they are mixed together with french spirits. Step 2 involves a second infusion – this time for two […]

Pama Pomegranate Liqueur

I’ve been loving the recent increase in the smaller 325ml bottles at the larger spirit retailers. On one of my recent shopping trips, I picked up a few interesting looking liqueurs to try including PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur.

I didn’t have any prior knowledge of this liqueur and I was really surprised to see who produces it. The bottle states that its made in Bardstown, Kentucky but it’s the only clue it’s a Heaven Hill Distillery product. And even though I’d been researching their whiskey products recently, I’d never visited this separate website with their full product list.

PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur is intended to be a versatile spirit […]

Bottle of Malibu Coconut Rum sitting on a wooden table, in front of a mixed white and wooden background

Malibu Coconut Rum

Malibu Coconut Rum is produced by Pernod Ricard, a France-based company that owns a wide variety of different liquor brands worldwide. Despite the name it’s most commonly known by, Malibu Coconut Rum is not technically rum – which one can tell from taking a closer look at the bottle. The label actually reads “Caribbean Rum With Coconut Liqueur” – as in many places it can’t be legally considered rum, and is […]
