Archers Peach County Schnapps
Advantages: Peach taste. Good price. Nice for an occasional shot or cocktail.
Disadvantages: Very sweet. Heavy.
Archers Peach County Schnapps is one of those drinks which I drink now and again, although it's not one of those drinks that I drink too often because it's quite rich and sweet. Archers delivers the traditional Peach Schnapps and it's something that's really nice to drink from shot glasses with friends at the start or end of a night out. It contains 20% alcohol by volume and so this is enough alcohol to give your night a little boost.
Archers Peach County Schnapps comes in an attractive frosted white glass bottle with the peach coloured Archers logo on the front and a big picture of a peach in case you're in any doubt what the flavour is! Essentially, this is a peach flavoured liqueur which can be drunk either as a shot, or as part of a longer drink in a variety of cocktail concoctions. The bottle contains 700mls of the liqueur and costs Ł12.79 from Tesco - which I feel is a decent price for a branded liqueur. Based on the average 25ml shot glass in the UK, there are 28 shots available in the bottle - and so that equates to 46p per shot. It is recommended that, once opened, the liqueur should be drunk within nine months......although it would never be hanging around for nine months in my house!
The taste of Archers is overwhelmingly of peach. It is incredibly sweet and is very syrup like and sticky in its consistency. The sweetness and syrupyness can actually make this quite a sickly drink which is also fairly heavy when drunk as a shot. After drinking Archers as a shot, my mouth can also feel quite coated with sugar and then I feel the need to wash my mouth around with another drink. However, despite this, it is actually a nice, pleasant fruity drink when drunk in moderation and I am left with a taste of peaches and general fruitiness in my mouth.
A really nice way of drinking Archers is to use it as a mixer. There are so many things Archers can be mixed with, but I have a few favourites. I particularly like mixing Archers with cranberry juice because I find that the dryness and sharpness of the cranberry juice actually compliments the sweetness by reducing the sweetness overall. In addition, I also like adding about half a shot of the Archers to a glass of champagne because the Archers is again complimented by the dryness of the champagne.
Overall, I do like Archers - but I don't love it! It is a nice fruity liqueur but it is very sweet and syrupy - and as such, can be quite sickly.
Summary: Nice occasionally.
