Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Brontë Liqueur to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

Brontë Liqueur Bottling Note

"Nature and Books belong to the eyes that see them" - Emily Brontë

So reads the bottle of this liqueur made, naturally, in 'God's own country', where the Brontë sisters themselves lived. A Yorkshire liqueur made with blackberries and sloes, wild flower honey and jasmine, the brand has recently been resurrected by Sir James Aykroyd. Formerly a chairman of Speyside Distillery, his great grandfather, Sir James Roberts was the chap who bought the Haworth village parsonage and gifted it to the Brontë Society back in 1928.

Extraordinarily, despite being distributed by a company in Leeds at the time, Sir James Aykroyd actually discovered the liqueur whilst in Paraguay forty years ago. Having seen it on a back bar, the barman could tell him little about it at the time other than it had been left there by somebody. Some things are clearly simply meant to be. The producer makes a small donation to the Brontë Society for each bottle sold.

Brontë Liqueur Reviews

Blackberries and sloes. In alcohol. That's it, really.

I'm not sure what to make of the introductory blurb given here. I bought a bottle of the stuff in Grassington, and 'The Celebrated Bronte Liqueur' is pleasant enough, if you like the overwhelming fruit flavours of blackberry and sloe, in an indeterminate alcohol base. Not a bad idea to mix it with a (cheaper) champagne. But it is nothing at all, even remotely, like the original liqueur made in Leeds, the one that came in the ceramic bottles. That was a mix of French brandy and honey, wonderfully sweet yet not cloying on the palate. I've tried pretty much every honey-based liqueur under the sun to find a match, and failed. True, I'm probably influenced by drinking it from a girlfriend's navel in my younger, headier days, but I'm not basing my tasting thoughts on that. So if you like the fruit flavours of this new version, fine, but I wouldn't pontificate about the history over the dinner party.
