Review: Fulton’s Harvest Pumpkin Pie Cream Liqueur

How do you know that fall has arrived? Easy: Pumpkin-flavored liqueurs arrive on the shelves.

Fulton’s, produced by Kentucky’s Heaven Hill, is a limited-edition liqueur available only from September to November. Now available nationally, this cream liqueur tells its tale simply by looking at its name.

The color is that of chocolate milk, and the nose is mild and a bit nutty, almost like graham crackers. On the palate, it’s very creamy (serve cold, of course, and refrigerate after opening), with a moderate rush of sweetness, followed by more of a pie spice character than anything specifically pumpkin. The nice thing about Fulton’s is that the sweetness isn’t overdone, a common problem with cream liqueurs that makes them too cloying to drink. Fulton’s goes easy on both the spice and the sweetness. Really, a vague milk character is the most evident part of the drink, but the autumnal spice character really does make one long for Thanskgiving dinner — especially dessert.

By the way, how do you know when fall is over? Easy: Pumpkin-flavored liqueurs sell for $3.99 a bottle.

25 proof.

    You can find it in Mass at Whiskey Hill Liquors in West Warren, MA. You can find us on facebook if you’re local too.

    Fulton Pumpkin Pie Cream Liquor is too sweet for those of us that are leaning toward diabetes or counting calories and like booze. Try pouring two oz and adding two oz of you favorite booze. I use brandy and sometimes add a splash of club soda too. Same bar strategy as slippery nipple etc, but using the PPCL instead of other liquors for the flavor. Had some company over and after two after dinner drinks with the brandy added and hot tub, I looked around and some were topless and some bottomless. Blame it on the great PUMPKIN!

    Due to it being the holiday season, I have been searching and searching for everything pumpkin! I found this at the store the other day and absolutely fell in love with it! It is especially good with a splash of whipped cream or vanilla vodka.

    The only thing I don’t like; it’s seasonal and the bottle goes too quick!! :)

  10. Micki Smith October 26, 2011 / 12:46 pm

    Where to find this to purchase in the Laurel, MD, Columbia, MD, Annapolis, MD area.

  11. Kelly October 29, 2011 / 5:14 am

    YUM! This is so good in coffee. I am going to incorporate it into homemade whipping cream that I will be putting on my pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. Slowly beat in small amounts and sprinkle with nutmeg. OMG…so delicious.

  12. Joan Miller October 29, 2011 / 7:45 pm

    Where in the Scottsdale or Phoenix, AZ area can I find it? My sister in Florida keeps raving about it.

  13. George November 3, 2011 / 9:25 am

    Where in Florida is your sister? I can’t find it anywhere

  14. linda2534@hotmail.com November 6, 2011 / 7:22 pm

    I found it at Fry’s-32nd Street and Bell

  15. Twinks November 8, 2011 / 5:28 pm

    Can be ordered online at http://www.budgetbottle.com I placed an order this Sunday and it was delivered to me today, Tuesday!

  16. Janice Robison November 17, 2011 / 8:11 am

    This sounds so yummy! Is this made with any kind of malt? Is it gluten free?

  17. Jeff November 22, 2011 / 2:49 pm

    Why can’t you buy this in Utah? Will it be available in Utah or are we just a lame State!

  18. Louise November 22, 2011 / 8:48 pm

    I got the last bottle of the Pumpkin Pie cream liquer at a Safeway in Hayward, CA. Where else can I find it and is it still available this season? My zip is 94546

  19. Jose M December 1, 2011 / 7:40 pm

    This was FANTASTIC. I made pumpkin white russians out of it. Replace this with the kahlua. They were AMAZING.

  20. annette December 3, 2011 / 7:57 pm

    Costco carries this fabulous drink!

  21. Anonymous December 7, 2011 / 10:14 pm

    Yes, Costco in San Diego carries it for $7.99! SOOOOO yummy!

  22. Jimmyz January 8, 2012 / 12:49 pm

    I live in south suburbs of Chicago, anyone know where i can get it?

  23. Karen January 22, 2012 / 3:31 pm

    I think this should be available all year all. I have been trying to find it in Florida and no one has it. I called Colorado wine shop in Dever, and they have it but can not ship it to me, because of state/federal reg for Fl.
    I got to taste it at the friend’s house last week and I was hooked, but can’t find it anywhere. Can it be ordered from the warehouse to a local ABC or wine shop etc.even if it is seasonal?

  24. beaverfever January 24, 2012 / 2:58 am

    We still have a ton in our local liquor store here in corvallis oregon. I picked a bottle up for my girlfriend as an early christmas present and she loved it when poured on top of ice cream!

  27. Christopher Null October 5, 2012 / 10:21 pm

    Cindy – fortunately, the time is here!

  28. Kirsten October 7, 2012 / 7:17 pm

    It can be found at ABC Fine Wine & Spirits in Florida seasonally for $9.99 no specially ordering needed. But it sells fast as it hits the shelf.

  29. SIS October 13, 2012 / 1:43 pm

    Couldnt even wait to get home….put some in our Starbucks! Delish!

  30. Scott October 28, 2012 / 7:51 pm

    Does it expire? I have a bottle from last year that has been refrigerated since.
    Thanks.

  31. Christopher Null October 28, 2012 / 8:23 pm

    Scott – is it open? All dairy products expire eventually, alcohol or not, but especially if they’re open.

  32. Scott October 31, 2012 / 6:34 pm

    Yes it’s open. To your point its dairy. That’s good enough for me. Thanks for the reply.
