Likör (liqueurs) are alcoholic drinks composed of distilled spirits flavored with fresh fruits, herbs, and spices. The origin of Likör (liqueur) production can be traced back to 13th-century Italy. Arnoldus Villanovanus, personal physician of various popes, gained fame for his deliciously sweetened medicines on the medicinal uses of brandy, likely the first Likör known in history. 


The History Of Likör Tours cover everything from the ingredients used in the distillation process to the rich cultural significance of liqueurs in various regions of the world.
