Authentic Pure Spice Liqueur from Germany
The origin of Aromatique dates back to 1828 when it was conceived as a remedy during an epidemic in Germany’s Thuringia region. The state-of-the-art production facility of today belies the expansive heritage behind the brand. An independent family firm, the owners honor the legacy by directing operations with impassioned care and respect– selecting only premium ingredients, adhering to the original recipe and using traditional production methods. All aspects of production are meticulously quality-controlled, from the gentle processing of the extract and refining the distillate, to bottling in the custom, angular bottle, the style of the original Kramer’s Aromatique. The secretly guarded recipe is a blend of carefully selected, premium spices. This iconic liqueur has a deep caramel hue, is beautifully aromatic, and its bold flavor is distinctively rich in spice, with sweetness balanced nicely by a touch of bitterness.
1/2 oz Aromatique Bitter

Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled to bring out the pure spice essence. Lovely with a fine beer or ale. Great in cocktail recipes. Enjoy as an aperitif or digestive around a fine meal. Extraordinary ingredient for making authentic spiced, mulled wine– Glühwein.
Aromatique is also well-suited to enhance culinary recipes. Add Aromatique to pancake batter for a warm hint of spice. Elevate Baked Ham by using Aromatique in the glaze and basting liquid.
Just as my father Erich introduced Jägermeister 50 years ago to the Western US, we are introducing Aromatique, a unique, German Bitter. -Henry Preiss

“Deeply botanical, some might say, medicinal scents that are compelling. Entry highlights the woody/bark-like aspects but then turns bittersweet, sap-like, smoky, toasty, black tea-like; midpalate is really the best phase as the flavors meld into one unified taste that’s bittersweet, pleasantly viscous, and silky.” -Highly Recommended
