What is vandotsch speculaas spice liqueur?
Some of our testers are describing it as liquid gingerbread with a kick. Christmas in a bottle.
How do you make it?
Easy, just add vodka to the bottle, using our little funnel included. Then, leave it to sit for six weeks or so. Shake it regularly. After 6 weeks unscrew your bottle, smell and taste. When it is to your liking strain it and drink your first shot or mix it in one of your favourite cocktail recipes. Refrigerate after straining.
What if you want to make it stronger? Leave the bottle to sit for a few more weeks. Shake it occasionally. Or maybe even weaker . . . but why would you want to do that?
You cannot drink the vandotsch speculaas spice liqueur immediately once you have added the vodka. You must first wait at least several weeks before drinking it. Just as wine, the liqueur must come to taste and that takes time.
What are the ingredients in the bottle?
Your bottle contains vandotsch speculaas ground spices, vandotsch speculaas spice mix, light brown sugar and dried orange. Our speculaas spice mix has no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives. Where possible, both our ground and whole spices are either organic, Fairtrade sourced or both.
How does it come?
With instructions included, it all comes in a 100ml fine looking bottle, ready to pour your vodka, together with a small funnel to assist you in pouring. Just close the cap after you have filled the bottle and let time do its trick.
What else do you need?
All you need to start making delicious vandotsch speculaas liqueur at home is a bottle of vodka and a sieve or wire mesh strainer (or something equivalent). That's it. Once you have these things, follow the directions above and drink responsibly.
Not a drinker?
No worries. It makes a great and unusual present.
It is also delicious as a topping over ice cream, such as our speculaas biscuits ice cream and for flavoring on pancakes and in pastries. You can even use it in your Christmas cake.
