Heering Cherry Liqueur has been produced by Peter Heering’s company since 1818. The liqueur is produced entirely from the Danish Stevns cherries grown in Denmark, to a traditional recipe.

After harvesting, cherries are crushed and mixed with spirit, sugar & spices and then matured for three years in Heering’s cellars at Dalby. Its dark red colour and flavour of black-cherries is not overly sweet making it ideal to be served on its own, with or without ice, or as a mixer in cocktails and long drinks such as the world-famous Singapore Sling. No artificial flavours or colourings added. 24% Alc./Vol.

Classic Cocktail: Singapore Sling
The Singapore Sling was created at Raffles Hotel at the turn-of-the-century by Hainanese-Chinese bartender, Mr. Ngiam Tong Boon. In the Hotel's museum, visitors may view the safe in which Mr. Ngiam locked away his precious recipe books, as well as the Sling recipe hastily jotted on a bar-chit in 1936 by a visitor to the Hotel who asked the waiter for it. Originally, the Singapore Sling was meant as a woman's drink, hence the attractive pink colour. Today, it is very definately a drink enjoyed by all, without which any visit to Raffles Hotel is incomplete. The recipe varies from book to book. Robin Kelly O'Connor, the Bordeaux expert, faxed Dale DeGroff of Craft of the Cocktail while he was staying there in 1990 and reports he's never tasted a better version.
