Cardenal Mendoza Angelus Liqueur
Cardenal Mendoza Angêlus is a liqueur based around Sherry Brandy, with Seville oranges, lemons, cardamom and clove. The most exclusive part of Cardenal Mendoza, the Angels’ share, takes on a new dimension in the form of a liqueur. Angêlus is a liqueur based around our classic Sherry Brandy.
The Angel's Share
Using the classic Cardenal Mendoza Brandy as its base, Angêlus is made by blending in the essences of the natural ingredients, principally bitter oranges and orange peel and cardamom, and ageing the blend in butts already seasoned with Sherry to achieve perfect balance.
This creates a unique, original and distinctive product which is enormously versatile.
Bright mahogany in colour with glinting amber highlights. On the nose it has fresh, intricate citrus and spiced notes which evoke sweet, tangy aromas of dried fruits. The palate offers an explosion of citrus notes, with lots of orangey bitterness from the bitter oranges, a sophisticated hint of spice and a slight toasted note, all balanced by some sweetness. The finish is seemingly endless.
Angêlus is amazingly versatile.
It is delicious on its own or with a little honey as a winter warmer helped by its spicy note. At other times of year it works beautifully neat with ice and a slice of orange, or as a long drink with lemonade or sparkling water. It also makes a very sophisticated version of the Alexander cocktail, shaken with ice and fresh cream. In the kitchen it makes a superb crèpe Suzette and a few drops vastly improve a fruit salad.
