Liqueurs & specialities

As the world embraces the concept of hygge, the time seems ripe for a Scandinavian spirits renaissance, particularly aquavit. The spirit already graces cocktail menus in the US and in London, and is ready to stretch its presence further afield.

Taking note from producers such and Bottega and Belsazar, vermouth brands will focus more on provenance and terrior – perhaps using local wines to create future expressions, rather than neutral grape spirit.

Coffee liqueurs will become increasingly trendy – particular those created in the cold­-brew style.
