Very nice tasting aperitif. Lingering tastes of citrus fruits. Best served ice cold. A favourite in our house.

Good neat, but is also excellent in Maritinis with Beefeater 24 or Hendrick's gins as a substitute for the dry vermouth.

First tried at age16 in Paris on a high school trip. Has been that 'special' drink ever since.
I hate when I run out of this! Superb aperitif (and dessert sipper as Tyler mentions).

This is really lovely, especially on the rocks with a slice of lemon or lime and a splash of soda. I think it will be a big hit next summer when I have a garden party.

A blend of Sauvignon and Semillon from the vines of Bordeaux mixed with a shot of brandy and delicately packed with personality. Tastes of peach, apricot, and a touch of orange rind bitterness; creamy on the mid-palate; refreshing, and everlasting. Advertized, as an aperitif but this will also work with light desserts. You’ll crave another sip. Serve well chilled. Tasted Sept 2012.

Nice on it's own, even better mixed with sparkling wine.

This one didn't lasttoo long on the shelves of our local LCBO. It is a popular local favourite and when word gets out that it has arrived, it flys out the door.

Very tropical, banana, kiwi aperitif. Good thick body gives it a nice smooth mouthfeel.

Delightful herbed citrus scent with a creamy smooth mouth feel. I found it too sweet straight up for my taste, but went perfectly with sparkling lemonade. Will definitely be trying it with other combinations of citrus fruits and soda. Tried December 19, 2013.
