Product of: United Kingdom
The original Thos Grant & Sons Ltd distillery was established in Dover, Kent, and later moved to Maidstone where it flourished under family ownership until the 1950s. The Kentish brewers Shepherd Neame purchased Thomas Grant in 1998 and revived the then out of production liqueur using the original recipe, English grain neutral spirit and Kent grown Morella cherries.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 26/03/2015
Clear, burgundy red.
Fruity, ripe morella cherry and toasted almond.
Syrup sweet but not overly so. Fresh morella cherry, cherry jam and almond with a hint of balancing acidity and sourness.
Long lingering jammy fruit with pleasing cracked black pepper tingle. Overall: Wonderful fresh cherry notes without the brandy/cognac notes found in some other high-end cherry brandy liqueurs.
