Danziger Goldwasser (literally 'gold water of Gdansk' in German) claims origins dating back to 1598 and the city of Gdansk where this liqueur is said to have been a favourite of Tsar Peter and Catherine The Great.
Flavoured with roots and herbs its 'golden' name references the flakes of 22-carat gold leaf which dance in suspension in the liquid when the bottle is shaken.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 01/04/2011

Appearance:

Crystal clear with flakes of gold leaf.

Aroma:

Aniseed, juniper and cinnamon nose with fresh cut grass and menthol aromas.

Taste:

Liquorice, aniseed and cinnamon palate which, while slightly sweet and syrupy, is far from cloying due to the balance of alcohol and hot cinnamon.

Aftertaste:

Prickly peppery, warm cinnamon finish.
