Nose: Restrained compared to the Mentzendorff – lemon being the dominant aroma with caraway taking a back seat.
Palate: In contrast to the nose, the caraway is more prominent with anise and hints of lemon sherbet in the background.
Finish: Medium to long with the anise making it through to the very finish.
Comment: An interesting contrast between nose and palate, the latter being where it really comes alive. The length is impressive – I can see why this is the choice of clubs around the country.

A fantastic liqueur. Unique for its complex caraway, cumin and fennel flavours and ABV at 39%. As a bartender I enjoy adding this to cocktails. The classic Silver Bullet, and a cocktail I found which is a variation on a bourbon sour with pressed apple juice are both brilliant. One that I created involves London Dry Gin, dry sherry, honey water, angostura bitters and kümmel. If you have access to the relevant materials and ingredients, give them a go!

A fantastic addition to my Austrian Goulash recipe:-
2kg Venison / Beef
Fry off meat and onions in large pan, add flour & paprika binding them together. Slowly add stock, stirring all the time. Season, add the kummel and leave to simmer until meat is tender (approx 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hours). Add more stock if required.....yum

Kummel was the best selling liqueur in Britain before The Second World War.Supplies dried up as then it was made in the Baltic states.It was amazing how a best sellar like Kummel was then forgotton and many people have not even heard of it today. This is a great drink that I like very much.I drink it with no ice and in a very small liqueur glass. You must try it and find out why it sold so well.

My defences were raised when I saw this was made in the UK - however, they needed have been. This stuff tastes 'exactly' as I remember it 40 years ago.....chilled down and sipped slowly this is masterpiece in a glass. Fabulous.
