Somrus Indian Cream Liqueur
Consider a Liqueur crafted in Chicago with pure dairy cream from Wisconsin, exotic spices from India, and Caribbean Rum. The idea is challenging enough before actually getting the proper balance that we find today in the bottle of Somrus. This is a truly unique Liqueur and I've tasted my share!
SomPriya is a new, premium spirits company bringing age-old, traditional and delectable flavors from the Indian sub-continent to cups of libations across the globe. SomPriya’s heavenly connotation derives from the name’s origin - "Som" meaning "God" in Indian languages and "Priya" meaning "Dear to" thus the belief and motto of being "Dear to Gods." Somrus – the great liqueur is the first product to be introduced and we think it's a damn fine start!
Creamy having a soft mocha color being more alabaster than brown.
The nose is incredible and one of a kind. The exotic scents of rose, dairy, cardamon, pistachio, and cinnamon with hints of sweet citrus and bergamot.
The palate echoes the nose with the addition of a silky, creamy texture that acts as the perfect delivery vehicle for the complex floral and spice notes.
Medium-bodied with perfect balance and an ever evolving collection of spice notes that linger for minutes.
How to Serve
I would simply serve this chilled, perhaps on ice but with not much more. The balance of flavors found in this Liqueur are so perfectly proportioned that it requires nothing else. However, it is great served in freshly brewed Earl Grey tea.
