Review: Granny’s Gingerbread Cream

Step aside Irish creams and pumpkin-flavored liqueurs. Now you’ve got a new holiday liqueur to contend with: Granny’s Gingerbread Cream.

This is a new product from the Lousiana-based Sazerac company, “made with natural vanilla flavor and heavy creams sourced from Vermont dairies.”

The nose initially comes across as more of a crusty holiday bread — a nutty banana bread or fruitcake — or perhaps a gingersnap cookie, with a distinctly toasty note to it. On the palate, the gingerbread character evolves more fully, offering a ginger and baking spice note that has a strong resemblance to gingerbread, with perhaps the addition of some apples and orange peel — the fruit making a clearer showing on the finish. As expected, the vanilla-scented liqueur is both creamy and sweet, but it’s restrained on both fronts, ensuring your mouth doesn’t end up coated with gunk after you polish off a glass.

The label alone would make this completely suitable for your holiday dessert cart, but the authentic and fun flavor profile seals the deal.

25 proof.

      In general, refrigerate all cream liqueurs after opening, yes.
