Review: Three New Thatcher’s Liqueurs

Share

Thatcher’s is making some of the most interesting liqueurs on the market: All organic, each sold with a little charitable sharing of its profits, and all intensely flavored spirits designed for modern cocktails. (Prior reviews are here and here.)

The company is adding three new flavors to its lineup in the coming weeks. We got samples of each. All are 30 proof.

Thatcher’s Blood Orange Liqueur is surprisingly maroon/red in color, but the flavor is considerably more orange in tone. It’s not overdone, like many a triple sec, which will slap you in its face with its tart citrus character, instead offering a smooth orange and raspberry spirit with a little cherry on the tongue. Easy to drink, and a good choice for a cocktail where you want a little color and nuance along with the orange flavor. A-

Thatcher’s Yumberry Liqueur is made from a new superfruit you’re probably going to start hearing a lot about this year. (Acai is so yesterday.) Hailing from China, it looks like lychee but smells like fruit punch. The taste veers toward mild strawberry, though there’s a touch of cloying cough syrup character in the finish that keeps it from being a masterpiece. Pink in color. Cute. Try it in a Cosmo. B

Thatcher’s Coffeehouse Liqueur you can smell from a mile away, made from a blend of organic coffees selected for balance and character. It’s lighter in color and body than most coffee liqueurs I’ve tried, and considerably sweeter. This makes it extremely easygoing on its own, a liqueur to choose if you want to drop a little natural coffee flavor into your cocktail without overpowering it. B+
