CHERRY HEERING liqueur is a sweet, full-bodied liqueur that is ruby red in color and has been produced in Denmark since 1818 to an original secret recipe handed down through five generations. CHERRY HEERING liqueur is made entirely from Danish cherries, spirit and spices and without any artificial flavours or colouring. CHERRY HEERING liqueur’s rich and rounded finish comes from its maturation in casks for a minimum of five years.

  • A special strain of cherry is used- the small, dark Stevens Cherry which has been evolved from an ancient variety still to be found growing wild in parts of Denmark
  • In order to make the CHERRY HEERING liqueur, the Stevens cherries are pressed together with stones to create a unique cherry taste
  • The pressed cherries (including the juice that is pressed off the fruits) are then pumped to oak vats where alcohol is added
  • In order to ensure that the rich taste of the cherries is maximized, the blend needs to rest and circulate for several months. 3-5 years later the product will be bottled. Some say that this is what adds that extravagance to the Cherry Heering Liqueur
