Sonnen Scheiner Krauter Liquor produced and bottled by Sonnenschein Private Distillery founded in 1875 Witten Germany serve cold – keep on ice.
Krauterlikor (herbal liqueur or spiced liqueur, also called “half-bitters”) is a type of liqueur that is flavored with herbs or spices and traditionally drunk neat as digestif. In contrast to bitters, they have a higher sugar content, expressed as invert sugar. Liqueurs of this kind normally contain 15% to 44% alcohol by volume.
The history of Krauterlikor recipes dates back to medieval authors like Hildegard of Bingen. Mixtures of alcohol and bitter substances were used as medicine to increase bile and gastric acid secretion. Actually, the higher proportion of alcohol and sugar is not conducive to digestion. Nowadays Krauterlikor is also served as an ingredient of different cocktails and long drinks.
