Mozart Chocolate Cream Pumpkin Spice Liqueur, like the whole of the Mozart range of liqueurs is made from 100% natural ingredients. If you like pumpkin pie and chocolate you will love this. With its orange foil wrapping and pumpkin face label, it is also a great idea for Halloween. Think pumpkin pie in a glass.
The Mozart Distillery was founded in 1954 and has built a reputation for producing high quality chocolate liqueurs and are the go to chocolate liqueur for barmen and many cocktail recipes around the world. The current Master distiller and chocolatier is Dietmar Fadinger.
The high reputation of Mozart Liqueurs is the result of the combination of completely natural, excellent quality products and Mozart’s special manufacturing process. The base product for all of the chocolate liqueurs is a cacao macerate. A specially selected, bespoke blend of two special cacao beans from West Africa, Forastero and Trinitario beans, is macerated in beet sugar alcohol for 2 months in oak barrels. During the maceration process, apparently the distillery plays Mozart to the macerating beans to help break them down, a process they call soundmilling (loud and low notes, a little like ultrasound. This helps break the beans down. Some of the macerate is used as is, some is re-distilled. There is an interesting, if a little dated, video about Mozart Distillerie here which explains the process a little more. Fine Bourbon Vanilla from Madagascar is also macerated for use in the liqueur blends.
Mozart Chocolate Cream Pumpkin Spice Liqueur is made using the same method as for Mozart Chocolate Cream Liqueur. As well as the chocolate cream liqueur (made with fresh cream, sugar, and West African cocoa beans), this is flavoured with caramel, natural pumpkin juice and high quality spices: cinnamon, clove, vanilla, and just a hint of chilli.
