Liqueurs are diverse and exciting. They can be as complex as single malt whisky, as smooth as high quality vodka and as flavourful as golden rum. Some can be enjoyed neat over ice, whilst others are crafted solely to bring something unique to a cocktail. Liqueurs are virtually made in every single country in the world and can be made from, and flavoured with, a staggering amount of fruits, spices, herbs, flowers and spirits. By European Law liqueurs must be spirit based, and be of at least 15% alcohol by volume, with at least 100g sugar per litre.

The Christmas Mulled Cup from Professor Cornelius Ampleforth is a brilliant creation designed to remove as much hassle from making mulled wine as possible, leaving more time to greet the carolers at your door with a steaming hot glass of the festive beverage.
The Professor's Christmas Mulled Cup is a merry blend of Fine Vintage Port, VSOP Cognac, tinctures made from warming Christmas spices like cinnamon, cloves and allspice, alongside cold-distilled orange and lemon peels and a helping of cold-distilled fresh root ginger. With a careful eye on all the measurements, the Professor has made sure every fruity note and hot spice has been well balanced for the perfect winter treat.
To create the Professor's mulled wine recipe, stir together 1 bottle of fruity red wine, 50ml of Christmas Mulled Cup and sugar to taste (he uses 65g). Heat up the mixture and let the Christmas festivities begin.
Professor Cornelius Ampleforth's Cherry Brandy is delightfully different to most cherry brandies, which are produced using neutral spirit and flavouring.
