Besides being a tradition, it's also a very popular hobby because it's fun and fascinating to follow the flavouring process and experiment with different spirits, flavourings, sweeteners, blends, etc. The variations are endless.
But... Although making flavoured schnapps and liqueurs is not an exact science with precise measures and methods, and although it's much about experimenting and what best suits your taste, there are some basic rules to follow.
So... If you are new to all this - or less experienced - this beginner's guide and reference book is for you.
Because it contains all the information, advice, tips, ideas and inspiration, you may need to get the best out of this fascinating and enjoyable hobby.
