A recipe from 1818, of cherries harvested in August, crushed with seeds, aged for three years in spices all contribute to this liqueur you cannot make on your own. There is no replacement. No substitute. This dark little number is complex, waxy, sweet and an icon in the modern cocktail bar. You can't make a Blood and Sand without it. We wouldn't have the Singapore Sling without it. Easily mixed or at the centre of a cocktail, Heering is the cherry on top of every occasion. Bless you, Denmark!
