Review: Celtic Crossing Liqueur

Ireland’s answer to Drambuie, this 60-proof liqueur is a blend of Irish whiskey, Cognac, and honey, intended primarily as a digestif.

Quite sweet but not overwhelmingly so, Celtic Crossing has a strong iced tea character that reveals itself in an interesting way, especially when served on the rocks. It’s not exactly whiskey, but it’s whiskey-esque — probably a wonderful idea to give to someone who claims not to like whiskey in order to introduce them — gently — to the idea.

Not terribly challenging, Celtic Crossing is quite pleasant but still calls for a significant sweet tooth in order to be truly enjoyed. Bonus points for the giant ship on the label.

    This is really popular with my friends in the SCA. I’ve been dying to get my hands on a bottle ever since I first tried it years ago. Alas, I don’t think it’s to be had in Mississippi.
    Spot on review :)

  2. SCA, huh? I guess when the mead runs out, Celtic Crossing will do!
