Caraway, cumin, fennel, light white pepper and freshly cut grass.
Much drier and lighter in style than lesser, comparatively syrupy kümmels, Helbing’s caraway flavour is also more complex and restrained. Light white pepper spice and spearmint-like freshness.
Long lingering, yet delicate caraway. Freshening.
More of an eau-de-vie Kümmel, Helbing lacks the syrupy sweetness common to many other Kümmel liqueurs and its complex caraway notes are comparatively delicate.
