WildBrumby Butterscotch Schnapps.
This stuff is liquid gold. Perfectly smooth with just the right amount of alcoholic fire in each sip, this caramelly goodness is best drunk slowly. A cheeky shotglass in one hand, a piece of dark chocolate in the other. The perfect dessert.
Sorry to go all boutique on you, but this baby is far superior to your average bottle of schnapps. The difference, apparently, lies in the technique; while a lot of off-the-shelf schnapps tend to be made using a heap of sugar, Wild Brumby have perfected a smooth sweetness by caramelising their apples.
I was introduced to this label by a friend; it’s not commonly available in liquor stores. (Perhaps it’s only downfall).
It’s made in a quaint little distillery in country NSW, between Jindabyne and Thredbo. All grapes and fruit are Australian – sourced from local producers in the surrounding area.
WildBrumby produce a variety of schnapps including Pink Lady Apple, Sour Apple, Pear William, Peppermint, Raspberry, Peach Nectar, and more. They’ve also got one titled ‘Devil’s Tongue’ – an insane mix of chilli, herbs and apple. I’d love to try a swig of this one ;)
To top it all off , when you order bottles online you can personalise the label!
