Samuel Gelston’s New Cream Liqueur
Last month Irish Whisky brand, Samuel Gelston’s launched its latest expression – an Irish Cream Liqueur.
Established in Belfast in the 1830s, and purchased by Harry Neill in 1869, the Samuel Gelston’s brand is synonymous with sourcing, bonding and blending some of the finest single malt and pot still whiskey from across Ireland. It has remained in the Neill family for five generations and is currently owned by Harry’s great, great grandson Johnny Neill who commented:
“The launch of our first liqueur is a historic moment for my family who have been making quality artisanal spirits for generations. Our latest offering is a real testament to the passion, skill and craftsmanship of our team who have created what I believe is a perfect blend of Irish whiskey, chocolate and cream. We are confident that it will be a real hit with drinkers and marks what is set to be both a busy and exciting year for the business.”
With a silky smooth mouthfeel and plenty of chocolate and coconut flavours, this decadent drink doubles as dessert on its own or can be added to coffee.
Also delicious poured over your favourite ice cream.
Whisky Boys wife Jacqueline did a taste comparison with me, on the left was a Baileys Irish Cream and on the right was Gelston’s New Irish Cream Liqueur. Both were poured over ice. Jacqueline tasted both and was very surprised at the level of flavour and richness that came from the Gelston’s Liqueur and out-shone the Baileys. In my opinion the level of viscosity and the flavours within my glass has made it my new after dinner liqueur.
Bottled at 17% Alc/vol and priced at only £17.00 for a 70 cl bottle this is a steal.
