Hellyer's Road Whisky Cream Liqueur (700ml)
Hellyer's Road Distillery, owned & operated by Betta Milk have combined both aspects of the business to produce this wonderful liqueur. The distillery is located next door to Betta Milk's Burnie facility and couldn't possibly be better placed to receive the fresh cream which makes this liqueur so distinctive.
Produced from a base of Hellyer's Road Original Whisky and Southern Lights Vodka then blended with real, fresh cream and a dash of 'topping' not dissimilar to what you'd have on your ice cream.
Tasting Notes: When we were first introduced to this wonderful liqueur, we must confess we were rather skeptical. Yet another cream liqueur in an already saturated market category. So we put the Hellyer's Road liqueur to the test at our Malvern store and we were quite taken aback when almost everyone who tasted it (female and male) purchased a bottle. The fact of the matter is that the Australian's are now doing a better job of it than the Irish. We're sure it won't just be your mother coming back for seconds.
Impenetrable beige colour, the liqueur clings to the glass with viscosity akin to paint. Wonderful top note of white chocolate, with hints of hazelnut, caramel and vanilla bean. The palate texture is wondrous. The fusion of fresh whipped cream and whisky creates a luscious and powerful drink that delivers a perfect reflection of the flavours offered by the nose, counterpointed by a firm, very gently warming spirit backbone. Good length. Perfect balance. Aftertaste of cafe-creme, milk chocolate and hazelnut with a gentle spirit afterglow. Moreish.17.0% Alc./Vol.
