Bentianna Honey Liqueur 70cl

£29.95
Bentianna is an innovative drink from Slovakia. A combination of honey, gentian, 13 herbs, grape juice and Slovakian Tokay wine that is aged in cask. This is versatile and can be enjoyed chilled as an aperitif, or as an accompaniment to after-dinner coffee. The nose is full and extractive, gentle citrus in the beginning is later covered with honey a veil with a subtle undercurrent of a mountain honey and dried raisins, finished with hints of caramel and tones of candied citrus peels. The sweetness of the intense forest honey and raisin extract smoothly flows to unmistakable gentle bitterness of the mountain herbs. The sweetness is not stark but rather beautifully balanced. Initially, you feel the juiciness of grapes and dried raisins pickled in forest honey. As the flavour subsides, you can feel the peels of candied orange and grapefruit. Captivating bitterness in the end balances the pleasing, unobtrusive sweetness of this liqueur and hints at the extract of herbs, foremost the gentian, which gives this elixir the unmistakable soul.
