Yorkshire Cream Liqueurs After Dinner
Jan Harris, Assistant Editor
It was a Friday evening and some invited friends came round for supper.

Kedgeree was cooked to Delia Smith’s recipe with a slight twist using a little of Yazi’s spices from Amaali (amaali.co.uk).

This was followed by the most delicious sweet of chocolate chip cookies soaked in coffee liqueur and re-stacked using whipped cream, then covered in more cream and chocolate shavings.

Supper over it was time to bring out the Carthy & Black selection of cream liqueurs for an after dinner tasting session.

What a delight the fragrances and tastes were just as it said on the bottle. Each tasting was followed by a long discussion as we agreed and disagreed with one another in trying to best describe the impression made on our palates.

All of us were of the opinion that you have to forget Baileys for this is not what Carthy & Black is all about. Their subtle blends are something else and reflect the fact that they are most definitely a Yorkshire product.

Using the freshest cream supplied by Paynes Dairies to ensure a smooth velvety texture. This is submerged with some of Harrogate’s award winning Slingsby Gin or a little Irish Whisky that has travelled across the sea and ended up in Yorkshire, blended together with some flavourings that teased the taste buds and took us on a journey down memory lane. I’m thinking particularly of the Yorkshire Lemon.

Here are some of the comments made, which I hasten to add were not made by a professional tasting panel but rather a group of friends enjoying an evening together, with a hostess who offered a bit of a surprise hidden in those mysterious black bottles of Carthy & Black.

All the guests were impressed with the design and colour of the bottles saying they were well designed, classy and just the right size.

Yorkshire Lemon - “It’s so nostalgic like eating a lemon puff biscuit from all those years ago, but this drink has a very nice kick to it!”
“It gave me a lovely warm feeling” said another of our dinner guests. “What a lovely way to follow the dessert.”

Yorkshire Cream Liqueur - “This has a subtle whisky flavour and a creamy texture. “More an acquired taste” said one guest.

Original Gin Cream Liqueur - “At first sight it looks like a glass of Milk of Magnesia but take a sip and it’s definitely not the aforementioned, if anything it could do with a little more gin!”

A final comment was: “Why didn’t we think of trying our hand at mixing some cocktails with them? When can we come round again? This would be such a treat.”
