Liqueur or fruit cream?
Liqueurs and fruit creams are often associated with each other, but they are two different categories of spirits. By definition, liqueurs are:
- Made from spirits (the distillation of plants, flowers or any dry raw materials) or infusions (maceration of fruits).
- Contain a minimum of 100g of sugar per litre
- With an alcoholic strength between 15% and 55%.
Fruit creams are liqueurs with a syrupy consistency, containing a minimum of 250g of sugar per litre.
