Gourmet Classic has enhanced its range of alcoholic cooking ingredients with the launch of a new selection of liqueurs.

Featuring the most popular and versatile flavours to add value to a range of savoury and dessert recipes, the new line of cooking liqueurs is ideal for accentuating the natural flavours of fruit-based signature dishes and savoury sauces. Each 350ml bottle of Gourmet Classic Cooking Liqueur is distinctively sweet and prepared by infusing the natural extracts in alcohol.

The cooking liqueurs have been matured to allow the flavours to develop and the rich colour of each liqueur is derived from its flavouring fruit, herb or flower. The range comprises – Gourmet Classic Creme de Cassis – Thick and syrupy with deep aromas of crushed blackcurrants, this is a flavour well suited to intensify a variety of robust meat dishes such as venison and pheasant.

Gourmet Classic Orange Liqueur – A blend of true cognacs and distilled essence of bitter orange makes this liqueur a perfect partner for rich chocolate desserts or to enhance the flavour of a savoury fruit sauce for duck.

Gourmet Classic Creme de Framboise – Blended and steeped in alcohol, the black and red raspberries infused in this versatile liqueur lend naturally sweet flavours to a range of chocolate and coconut desserts as well as ice creams and sorbets.

Gourmet Classic Cherry Brandy – A delicious partner for light game, this deep red rich cherry liqueur can add complexity to marzipan Petits Fours.

Gourmet Classic Creme de Menthe – Add value to braised lamb dishes with a splash of this classic mint liqueur. A fine choice for complementing the sweetness of a raspberry creme brulee or to add a fresh alternative to sweet pastry recipes.

Gourmet Classic Amaretto – Apricot and almond kernels combine to form the basis of this Italian liqueur. Light meat dishes such as pork partner well with its nutty-sweet flavours whilst the liqueur will also add richness to peach and almond desserts.

About Gourmet Classic
In 1998 Gourmet Classic introduced cooking wine as a unique category to foodservice sector by adapting the alcohol content and lightly seasoning these alcoholic products. By doing so, the excise duty and VAT were removed to enable professional cooks to include these ingredients more cost effectively into menus.

Over the past 11 years, the company has developed and extended its product range to include wines, fortified wines, eaux de vie, spirits and now liqueurs.

The new Gourmet Classic Cooking Liqueurs range is available from foodservice wholesalers. For recipes and chef tips, visit
