Wild Liqueurs

Wild Liqueurs

My Wild Damson Liqueur is ready at last! Warm plummy notes and smooth finish make this a very popular drink.  Made in a batch of 4,000 bottles from the generous wild harvest of 2014, it may be some time before we can make this again as the wild damson plum harvest is unpredictable and elusive.

The trees blossom in April and are at risk to late frosts,  even high winds and rain can hamper pollination and leave us without a crop.

Awarded two gold stars by Great Taste of Britain and Ireland, this is a very special batch.

My Wild Beech Leaf Liqueur is a one of a kind liqueur made from leaves handpicked in the Irish countryside. Just a little is taken from each tree and then treated according to an old family recipe which has been refined and perfected by Wild Food Mary. The resulting liqueur has burnt toffee aromas and a pleasant smokiness to it, smooth on the tongue with a lingering satisfying finish. Wild Beech Leaf Liqueur has unique flavours and lends itself well to cocktails, or as a shot served with dessert or beside a coffee.

‘Wild Food Mary vs the World’ cocktail at FIRE Restaurant in the Mansion House, Dublin

Hidden Ireland’s Roundwood House were first to include our liqueurs in their menu. Three of Ireland’s Michelin Star chefs are also using the liqueurs in their restaurants.

I’m proud to bring you my unique liqueurs produced with care and respect for nature.

It’s been a great year for wild food, still going. Sat Nov 30th a stroll in Slieve Blooms gave a large haul of Hedgehog mushrooms and amazingly also some Chanterelles.

The Oak leaves are dry and crispy, time to harvest some for wine and at home there is Blackberry wine to bottle, Elderberry syrup to make from frozen juice, Damson Vodka to bottle, Truffles to make from the drunken Damsons and lots lots more.

I have had a fab year, met so many interesting people, thanks for all the emails and interest and wishing each and everyone peace and a happy new year.
