Valmiermuiža Malt LiqueurABV19,5%.
What makes Latvia’s first malt liqueur special is that is made from just four beer ingredients: water, malt, hops and yeast. It does not contain an iota of sugar, relying instead on the natural sweetness of malt. It is a veritable symphony of flavours for true gourmands.

Once upon a time, it occurred to the landlord of Valmiermuiža Craft Brewery that, “If one can make liqueur from coffee, eggs, cream, berries and a whole host of other ingredients, then why can’t we make a liqueur from malt?” His wish was our command. Utilising our own distilled lager and malt sauce, we are now making a fine liqueur at Valmiermuiža.
The basis for our liqueur is Valmiermuiža Distilled Amber Lager to which we add a judiciously proportioned measure of Valmiermuiža malt sauce (150ml malt sauce is added to 100ml distilled lager). This sweet delicacy is then poured into a barrel and left to mature for 10 days. When the taste master deems that the flavour has matured to his satisfaction, the malt liqueur is carefully poured into bottles.
We recommend that those with a love of sweet flavours should enjoy it after a meal as a sweet digestif or as a sweet dot on the “i” at the end of a convivial evening. To fully appreciate the full aroma and flavour, our malt liqueur should be served in a stemmed 40ml tulip shaped glass +16 – 18 °C.
