Kummel is an age-old spirit flavored with caraway, citrus and other botanicals. It is traditionally produced throughout Central Europe and is usually taken as an aperitif though it is beginning to show up in cocktails as well. Legend has it that it was first produced in Holland in the 1600s, but it is likely far older than that.
Golden Moon Kummel is the first spirit developed by Robbie Cunningham, Cunningham, one of Golden Moon’s assistant distillers. Robbie discovered Kummel while working at the venerated St. Andrews Golf Club, Scotland, where many believe the game of golf originated. In Scotland, Kummel is known as known as the “Putting Mixture” and it is a favorite spirit of the members of some of the oldest and most famous Golf Clubs in the country. It is rumored that more Kummel is consumed in the club houses of St. Andrews, Prestwick and Muirfiel golf clubs than any other place in the world.
Whether your sipping it while golfing, drinking it as an aperitif or using it in a cocktail, we’re sure you’re going to enjoy Golden Moon Kummel.
