How to Enjoy Somrus
Winner of the Double Gold Medal and named Best Cream Liqueur at the 2017 San Francisco Spirits Competition, you might still find yourself asking, “What is Somrus?” Good question! Somrus began as our desire to share the culinary delights of Indian desserts with the rest of the world. Naturally, we had to start with the best ingredients, which is why we hand-selected an excellent rum, paired with fresh Wisconsin dairy cream as the base for our liqueur. There’s a lot of fine dairy country in America, but for our money, nothing beats pure, all natural Wisconsin cream.
Next, the magic happens—we blend in a handful of decedent flavors from India’s richest treats. Each drop of Somrus contains the essence of almonds, rose, pistachios, cardamom and saffron—one of the most expensive spices on the planet, but we know you’re worth it. “But why would I want to try an Indian cream liqueur” you might ask? Because India has the second highest population in the world, but culinarily, is one of the least explored. We have so much more to offer than curry, and we can’t wait for you to taste what you’ve been missing.
So, our Somrus with five spices was a wonderful start, but there are so many more delectable flavors of India to share. That’s why we created our SomruS Alphonso Mango using, in our opinion, the finest mangos in the world. Our newest liqueur tastes like it’s been kissed by the summer sun, and bursts with the ripe fullness of these exquisite Alphonso mangos. They’re only harvested for a few short weeks during the early summer, and each bottle captures a taste of that fleeting season.
If this sounds good to you, you might be wondering about how best to enjoy Somrus. We’re so glad you asked! Somrus is delicious sipped alone, but it mixes wonderfully in teas, chai or coffee. It’s also a versatile addition to many cocktails, and shines as a recipe ingredient, lending exotic flair to many traditional dessert recipes. The Somrus Alphonso Mango is particularly good over vanilla ice cream—trust us on this one.
