Myrtil Blueberry Liqueur

December 06, 2011

My  'new favourite thing' on the shelves at the moment is the Myrtil Blueberry Liqueur from expert Italian distillers, Bepi Tosolini. Wild blueberries are left to infuse the alcohol for four months resulting in an incredibly rich, luscious liqueur, bursting with fruit.

Myrtil is delicious with Champagne as a Kir or over ice after dinner. If you prefer a refreshing long drink, just add soda and ice and for sweet treat, pour it over icecream.

To add to the gorgeousness of the drink, the presentation is also fantastic, making it a perfect present. The bottle is very pretty and there are loads of blueberries inside. If you really want to treat someone then a bottle of the liqueur with a bottle of bubbly in a wicker tray looks fab.

Years ago, before very clever folk started coming up with all manner of means to keep open bottles of wine (reasonably) fresh, half bottles of wine were a thing. Growers would routinely bottle a modest proportion of their harvest into half bottles and restaurants in particular, would carry them, largely for the benefit of solo diners
