From fruity expressions such as cherry and passion fruit to core cocktail ingredients including curaçao and cassis, there are a variety of liqueurs on the market today that offer excellent quality at affordable prices.

Our latest blind tasting, The Liqueur Masters 2020, sought to put the spotlight on some of the category’s best bottlings.

As with the majority of our competitions this year, the tasting was held virtually over Skype from the judges’ UK homes. The competition was tasted anonymously by an expert panel of judges comprising Melita Kiely, editor of The Spirits Business magazine, and Ivan Dixon, independent spirits consultant. Wine Sorted decanted and shipped all of this year’s entrants in anonymous bottles to ensure that the competition could continue under the stringent conditions.

Here, we look at 10 liqueurs that grabbed the top accolade of Master during the competition. In total, there were 19 Master medals awarded during the blind tasting.
