Kumquat Liqueur

The local drink of Corfu

The Ionian island of Corfu, has been home to the kumquat tree since 1924. The literal translation of Kumquat from Chinese is 'golden orange', which is precisely what the fruit looks like.

It is a bitter-tasting citrus fruit that cannot be eaten raw, but the liqueur made from it is deliciously sweet. It is one of the most popular soft drinks of the island, particularly elegant and aromatic.

Once served, it displays delicate aromas of sweet citrus fruits on the nose that follow through to the palate. It can be used in cocktails and long drinks.
