Westjysk Smag Quince Liqueur

Liqueur Taste Master 2020

The Fruit flight was the largest category in The Liqueur Masters 2020. Last year’s competition produced a record number of Master medals, highlighting the enormous progress the liqueur category has made.

The sector can no longer be overlooked or shoehorned into the Christmas season – quality abounds. Flying the flag for liqueurs was Quince Liqueur from Westjysk Smag, which took a Master medal in the Fruit flight. It had “natural quince aromatics” and a “nice balance between acidity and sugar”.

Tobias Gorn, spirits specialist, consultant and writer, said: “This was as good as you can get.” The Liqueur Masters also assessed styles such as herbal liqueurs, cassis, chocolate, cream, mint, tea, traditional and own‐label releases.

Gorn said: “The entries were of exceptionally high quality, with some great classics made immaculately, and some more adventurous products.”
