A Simple Guide to Fruit Flavored Liqueur
With so many technical terms are used for alcoholic beverages, it can be difficult to understand the intricacies among them, especially when it comes to similarly named products like liquor and liqueur. Besides, there are so many different liqueurs to choose from, it can be hard to know where to start. To help make an informed decision, we’ve created a simple guide to guide you through the diverse world of liqueurs.
What is the difference between liquor and liqueurs?
The terms “liquor” and “liqueur” are very similar, so it’s easy to confuse the two when looking for the right brand. While both refer to a variety of distilled spirits, they are not the same; one is the basis for the other, but the way they are made and the ingredients added ensure that they are actually completely different.
Liquors are spirits made from grains or other plants through fermentation and distillation processes. The distillation stage separates alcohol vapor from water, increasing the alcohol content of the final product. Liquors are usually not sweet. There are seven famous liquors categories in the world, including vodka, gin, whiskey, tequila, rum, brandy and Chinese baijiu. You can drink the liquors neat or on the rocks, but they can also serve as the base for mixed drinks and cocktail drinks.
Liqueur is an alcoholic beverage that uses distilled spirits as the base liquor with various flavoring items and has been sweetened. In short, liqueurs are sweetened distilled spirits, such as vodka or rum, that have added sugar or syrup. Distilled spirits will still form the base of the liqueur, but the alcohol content will sometimes be lower due to the use of additives. There are several different types of liqueurs such as coffee liqueurs, chocolate liqueurs, cream liqueurs, fruit liqueurs, etc. But let’s focus next on fruit flavored liqueurs.

What Makes Our Fruit flavored liqueur Liqueurs So Unique?
Fruit liqueurs often have a very sweet flavor because manufacturers or brands add large amounts of sugar to the recipes. Many fruit flavors may also come from artificial ingredients rather than natural sources. In addition to creating a more disgusting taste, it can also make the liquor base difficult to distinguish, whether it’s rum, gin, or vodka used in the liqueur.
At MEIJIAN, we’re proud of the delicious, naturally flavored products we create. Our green plums are hand-harvested in April each year to ensure they are used at the best time of the year. To preserve the rich aroma of green plums, we employ the traditional Chinese sugaring technique to extract green plum juice. Large pieces of yellow rock sugar slowly release sugar, allowing it to harmoniously blend with the tartness of green plums while safeguarding the plum’s fragrance, resulting in a milder taste.
In addition, by using high-quality single sorghum baijiu, it allows our green plum fruit liqueur still have elegant plum aromas, floral and fruity notes, but without sacrificing the pure flavor of the baijiu. Baijiu is China’s national drink and has a rich tradition. Using it as the base for our fruit liqueurs reflects our commitment to authenticity.
