Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Despite the tall, square-shouldered green glass bottle, the spirit inside is clear and bright. Look for a light sweetness and pronounced anise and caraway flavors. Induces cravings for a slice of fresh rye bread. Best chilled. - K.N. (Oct 2012)
Kümmel, also known as kimmel, is a German, sweet, colorless liquid flavored with caraway seeds, cumin, and fennel. Helbing Hamburg's Kümmel is subjected to a longer distillation process for a smoother taste. It is the original caraway liqueur, established in 1836, and the world leader for Kümmel quality for the past century. It is made from a strictly guarded family recipe. This Kümmel has a distinctive, full, rounded flavor with a delicate bouquet. Only the finest caraway seeds and purest grain alcohol are used to produce this liqueur. We recommend you drink Helbing Kümmel ice cold, in a tall glass to focus the bouquet, or alongside a glass of your favorite beer.
