Liquor Quik Essences: Liquor Quik carefully selects the seeds, herbs, fruits and essential oils. These are then macerated or distilled, then fortified with alcohol and sweetened. Liquor Quik obtains the best essences from Northern Europe, where the “old-world” style of extraction is still very much a treasured art. Easy to make, full instructions are printed on each label. These essences are mixed with sugar and neutral vodka to replicate your favorite liqueurs at a fraction of the cost.
