On this day in 1989, protestors tore down the Berlin Wall, which had divided communist East Germany from capitalist West Germany since 1961.

The wall was a potent symbol of communist power and audiences around the world watched in awe as folk dismantled it, slab by slab - some entrepreneurial types saving pieces to sell as souvenirs. The end of the wall was a great moment for Germany, a great moment for the world, and a signal that a new era was beginning, as the Iron Curtain that had divided Europe fell, live on international TV.

Commemorate this amazing day with a Berlin Sour, invented in Frankfurt and enriched with the caraway-cumin spice of that Central European favourite, kümmel liqueur.
