Xante Liqueur is a premium Cognac and Pear flavoured liqueur made in Estonia by Altia Plc. who acquired it from the Swedish Thilander family in 2012.
Xante was created by Richard Heinrich, the fourth generation of distillers and blenders at Maison Heinrich in Belgium, a family firm established in 1894. He had access to rich archive of old liqueur recipes in which he found the inspiration for Xante which was launched at the end of 1995. It is a careful blend of Cognac brandies which have been aged for a minimum of 4 years in in Limousin oak, which lends a gentle vanilla character and rich amber colour. This is then flavoured with natural pear essence. It is made using only high-quality, all-natural ingredients containing no artificial additives. It has a relatively low sugar content, for a liqueur, of 17%.
