Category: Quince fruit liqueurs
Product of: United Kingdom
A traditional liqueur made from Cydonia Oblonga or European Quince and not Chaenomeles or Japonica, which apparently, while good for making jelly are too acidic for liqueur making. Bramley and Gage use varieties including Vranga and Meecher’s Prolific and do not use of preservatives or colourings.

Clear, coppery amber with bright polished golden highlights.
Subdued nose with earthy quince, figs and plum fruit.
Restrained use of sugar make for a dry liqueur if there is such a thing – a least while is starts sweet it is quickly dried with fruit tannins. Flavour is of figs and quince.
Fairly short finish with lingering leathery tea-like tannins.
