I bought a bottle of this last year, I was throwing my friend a Harry Potter themed party for her 25th birthday (yes i now, we're a bit old for that sorta thing now) - anyway, I was trying to come up with a home recipe for some alcoholic butter beer. I decided to go for Butterscotch schnapps and cream soda after reading it somewhere on the internet.
Turns out nowhere really the sells the stuff so I ended up going to a specialist wine shop and paying around £20 for the stuff. It comes in a white bottle with the logo written down the side and has a silver screw off cap. As soon as you undo the bottle the strong scent of sugar and butterscotch hits you, its a very sickly sweet and over whelming scent. The drink itself is pretty much the same, I cannot stand to drink it on its own as its so sickly it makes me gag a little bit. It is quite smooth to drink though and doesnt burn your throat or anything.
So excitedly we made our butterbeers, and took a sip - only to find that a sip was all we could manage! The sweetness of this added to the sweetness of cream soda was just too much, I think if I had drank more than a sip I would have been sick, or had a major sugar rush! So we poured this down the sink and moved onto some firewhisky instead.
Overall this drink certainly is what it says on the bottle - its like drinking pure butterscotch just thinner and runnier. For me it is far to sweet to enjoy (and I have a sweet tooth) so I have now had the bottle for just over a year and there is still alot left! It has gone down slowly however as I have found it can be quite nice in coffee if you put the smallest amount in, otherwise it just overpowers the coffee.
Teichenne of Spain are considered the pioneers on fruit schnapps production using an elaborate range of natural fruit products to make the sweetest of liqueurs. At 20% alcoholic volume, they have an unsurpassable taste to be enjoyed and served cold as an appertif or digestive. Their distinctive design and frosted glass bottles make them an attractive addition for dinner parties, social occasions and their taste is truly divine.
