"Bright ruby in color, this liqueur has a rich and vibrant aroma, akin to raspberry fruit leather. On the palate, it's equally vibrant, with a prominent tart and sweet aronia and cherry notes leading the way. Also present are hints of cinnamon, orange and a touch of florality. This would be a fantastic summer sip topped with a bit of soda and garnished with lemon. "
