Product of: Netherlands
Apparently this lurid salmon pink liqueur from De Kuyper is “made from fine spirits blended with rhubarb flavours.” Which we translate to mean neutral spirits blended with commercial essence, sugar and citric acid.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 28/08/2012
Clear, bright baby/salmon pink.
Aromatic baked rhubarb with aromas reminiscent of the striking strip on a box of matches. Faint notes of vanilla and sherbet orange.
Bittersweet with tart citric acidity detracting from flavours of sweet tinned stewed rhubarb.
Lingering acidy masks rhubarb and red berry flavours. Labelled ‘Sour Rhubarb’ this liqueur has the citrus acidity you’d expect of a lurid green sour apple liqueur.
