Enjoyable either sipped straight or added to a cocktail, Burwood Honey Liqueur is a versatile sweet liqueur that pays homage to its Eastern European roots. Burwood marries fresh raw honey from the distillery’s hives in Chestermere with a single-malt barley base, resulting in an Alberta tribute to Croatian medica, a traditional honey liqueur. The distillery recommends pairing the liqueur with desserts to further complement the honey flavour, or to include a shot with chamomile tea during steeping to create a complex and soothing nightcap.
