Tasting Notes

On the surface this liqueur seems straight forward enough but spend a little bit of time with it and the intrigue deepens. The opening notes are pure pineapple, bright, tropical and refreshing. Peel away the layers and you'll reveal honey, caramel, coconut cream and chocolate orange. A no brainer that works easily well with something as simple as mixing with sparkling wine to your most ambitious creations.

Staff Pick Notes

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? I would if the bar stocked this delicious liqueur. Fresh, roasted, and candied pineapple flavors harmonize, ready to add a pineapple slap to margaritas, whiskey sours, and of course piña coladas. My love affair with this bottle may have started at the bar but now it keeps popping up in my kitchen. Roast pears? Dice up some pears, put them in an oven-proof ramekin with a nice pat of butter or three, pour on this liquor and roast, stirring often, until pears are tender and starting to brown. Serve over pistachio ice cream. Shrimp and pineapple stir fry? Fry shrimp in a hot pan, remove, toss pineapple chunks with corn starch, brown them in the same pan, deglaze with a nice pour of this liqueur, and season to taste. Be like a pineapple, stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside.

Astor's Glossary of Terms

Loire

There’s a lot to remember when it comes to the Loire. Novices, take note: Cabernet Franc is a great alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscadet is unparalleled as a companion to shellfish, and Cour Cheverny is the best white wine appellation you’ve never heard of. As diverse as Loire wines are, one day soon you'll know your Melon de Bourgogne from your Romorantin.
