Traditionally made from cherries and cherry stones, Cowen's kirsch has been made to a special cuisine recipe so that it blends well with other ingredients. A perky 25% abv. alcohol content is designed to hold in the almond-like fragrance and flavour of cherries.
A timeless kitchen ingredient, kirsch de cuisine has been described as "never in fashion because it has never been out of fashion". Adventurous cooks discover the secret of kirsch with every generation.
Canny cooks have long used kirsch as the secret flavour that transforms everyday desserts such as fruit salad into great dishes. But kirsch also figures in savoury Swiss cheese fondue as well as the classic Alsatian baked apricots.
