Review: Combier Roi René Rouge Cherry Liqueur

Reportedly a recipe that dates back to 1632, Combier (which makes an outstanding orange liqueur) is now producing this complicated cherry spirit, a pinkish-red liqueur popular, they say, in the court of Louis XIV.

It’s easy to see why the royals enjoyed it: Combier Rouge is unlike your typical cherry liqueur (such as Peter Heering), lighter both in color and flavor, and considerably more complicated, too.  Cherries are certainly the most lively note here, but their sweetness is compounded by additional ingredients that suggest rose petals and wood notes. (Combier suggests pepper and licorice — enigmatic characteristics that are there if you go hunting.)

A blend of three types of cherries, 100 percent natural ingredients, and no added sugar, this is a delicious alternative to more traditional cherry infusions that merits attention.

34 proof.
