Bols Apricot Brandy is one of the oldest Bols liqueur recipes, dating back to the 19th century. Apricot kernels were originally sourced from Marseille where they were and stored in barrels filled with brandy. The distillation of the mixture made a fabulous liqueur and contributed to its name.
Today, Bols Apricot Liqueur is a blend of apricot kernel distillate, fresh apricot juice and brandy. Bols crush the apricot kernels to give this liqueur faint amaretto flavours supported by orange.
