Krupnik: Spiced Honey Liqueur

Krupnik Bottle Photo

JVR Spirits follows a traditional recipe for Krupnik that is centuries old and made by my family for three generations. We start with whole organic spices that we crush, crack, slice, or grind on the day that we make a batch. We use fresh organic citrus, cut and peeled by hand. And we use honey from the same family-owned business as my dad did forty years ago. Blended with fine neutral grain spirits, aged and settled, the result is our very best effort so that you can simply enjoy. Please do. Responsibly, of course.

Tasting Profile

With a nose of honey and cinnamon, Krupnik is unabashedly sweet, but not cloying or treacly. A spice for every palate—it has hints of clove, nutmeg, vanilla, and ginger, with an orange finish. A true liqueur, it has a mouth feel that is perfect to enjoy neat. Also refreshing on the rocks or as flavoring in a cocktail—it pairs especially well with coffee, rum, and even whiskey flavors.

The Blend

Krupnik is a liqueur made by blending spiced tea with honey and grain neutral spirits. Itʼs not rocket science, but it does take a bit of figuring out to find balance in the blend of spices and fruit and honey varieties to get to a pleasing result. Weʼre happy to have done the homework for you.
