Liqueur Original Danziger Goldwasser 500 mlHardenberg-Wilthen
A liqueur that contains flecks of 22-carat gold with a unique herbal and spice flavour. The unique composition of more than 20 herbs and spices also provides the liqueur with a unique aroma. The creator of the recipe has managed to perfectly combine the advantages of such diverse ingredients as cardamom, coriander, juniper, thyme, cinnamon, lavender, cloves and aniseed.
This noble beverage was created by Ambroge Vermollen, a 16th century Dutch emigrant, who settled in Gdansk and began producing cardamom liqueur according to his own recipe. When Vermollen was granted citizenship of Gdansk in 1598, he established a liqueur factory in the city, which he named "Der Lachs" (The Salmon) - after the royal fish considered a symbol of happiness and prosperity.
This excellent liqueur enjoyed a well-deserved reputation, earning it the title "Liqueur of kings - king among liqueurs" and finding its way onto the tables of the most prominent figures of the time. As early as 1767, it was supplied to the court of Catherine the Great. The liqueur recipe has been passed down from generation to generation and is now owned by Graf von Hardenberg, owner of a liqueur factory in Germany. All the ingredients proportions the order and the way they are combined are still a company secret to this day. Today, the liqueur is produced according to an old recipe in Norten-Hardenberg.
According to one of the legends from Gdansk, it was Neptune who contributed to the creation of the famous Gdansk Goldwasser liqueur. Outraged that coins were being thrown into the fountain and clogging it up, he struck the water with his trident and smashed the gold into tiny flakes, which have since adorned the magnificent herbal liqueur.
