This Danish liqueur has been made since 1818 and has very little in common with any other cherry spirits, most of which are unsweetened (in the case of eau de vies) or compounded of numerous unnatural ingredients (in the case of an abomination like cherry pucker). Heering is made from real Danish cherries as well as almonds and spices.

There is intensely sweet candied fruit on the nose along with almond. The taste is very sweet with bright cherry and spice and a subtle almond note. Heering has a lush mouth feel and a long finish.

Two Great Cookbooks for Hanukkah 2014 on

…Eating Delancey, is Mr. Rezny’s personal homage to the vanishing flavors of his youth. Similarly, Mr. Schaps waxes nostalgic about his bubbe Ethel Raben and the meals he consumed in her Russian-Yiddish-American kitchen. Mr. Rezny photographs the semaphores of their combined history — bagels, halvah, knishes, seltzer bottles — with the same intention. The photographs of iconic quaffs — a bottle of Cherry Heering, Slivovitz, a bottle top of Cel-ray soda, tea in a glass are stunning in their simplicity. And the luster of the finished dishes — a slice of creamy cheesecake, Schwartz’s sweet and sour flanken, even matzo brei, a monochrome dish if there ever was one, here looks sensuous…

WHIZ BANG served at The Cavalier in San Francisco

…I began my first meal with the Whiz Bang which was based on an old 1920s recipe from the famous London club called Sports Club. It was made with Tobermory Scotch, Cherry Heering, Sweet Vermouth, and Absinthe and was a really wonderful, spirit-forward drink. The smokiness of the scotch hit me first, followed by a touch of sweetness, ending finally with the herbal quality of the absinthe. Really nice….

What the Heck Is a Sling? Cherry Heering Wants to Help You Learn on

By Tony Sachs

All through September and October I kept hearing about the Peter F. Heering Sling Awards which were taking place in Berlin. I wasn’t particularly interested because, well, it’s one of approximately 12 skadillion cocktail competitions that take place around the globe each year. And besides, I thought, I don’t even really know what a sling is.

Which got me wondering — what the heck is a sling, anyway? My knowledge included exactly three sling-related factoids:

1. The bittered sling was present at the birth of the modern cocktail in the early 1800s — in fact, the very first mention of the word “cocktail” in print, back in 1806, mentioned that it was “vulgarly known as bittered sling.” It was described as a spirit, sugar, water and bitters, which basically made it an Old Fashioned.

2. The Singapore Sling is a yummy cocktail first created at at the Raffles hotel bar in Singapore in the early 20th century. It includes lots of ingredients, at least one of which I never have on hand, so I don’t make it at home.

3. Modern slings include Cherry Heering.

Well, I was right about #1, at least. Nobody quite knows what the real, proper, original Singapore Sling recipe was. And in fact the early Singapore Slings may not have even included Cherry Heering, although today it’s a virtually essential ingredient.

At this point you may be asking, what the heck is Cherry Heering? Well, first off, it’s not a fruit-flavored fish. It’s actually a cherry brandy from Denmark that’s been around since 1818. It makes a delicious after-dinner liqueur, but more importantly it’s used in the Singapore Sling and the Scotch whisky-based Blood & Sand, two of the greatest cocktails you may have never made at home, possibly because you don’t have a bottle of Cherry Heering on hand.

The Blood & Sand’s recipe is more or less a constant, but the air of mystery surrounding the Singapore Sling’s “real” recipe gives bartenders, both pro and amateur, a lot of latitude when creating it. Which is why the Peter F. Heering Sling Award competition can exist. Which leads us back to the question, what is a sling? Simon Difford, one of the judges for the semifinal, said, “”The definition of what a Sling actually is was stretched to the breaking point by some competitors in their quest to stand out….” Other judges, like
David Rosengarten, the famed food/wine writer and one of the judges of the contest, admitted to not really knowing the textbook definition of a sling: “I wasn’t sure what had to be included in a sling, besides Cherry Heering, of course [this was the one hard-and-fast rule of the competition]. Gin? Juice? And then [fellow judge and cocktail historian] David Wondrich took us aside and told us, ‘Don’t think of the Singapore Sling as a drink, think of it as a category.’ And then it all made sense.” A HA!

Suitably emboldened, the panel of six judges (plus the invited audience, which also cast votes) tried the five drinks and quickly and unanimously settled on the winner. As Rosengarten put it, “It was pretty obvious to me which one stood out from the rest, and it turned out that the rest of the panel felt the same way.” The triumphant cocktail was the Sloe Sling, created by Denmark’s own Nick Kobbernagel Hovind, which switches out traditional gin and Benedictine for sloe gin (flavored with sloe berries) and aquavit — a nice Nordic touch. The recipe, for all you home bartenders out there:

In a Boston shaker glass combine the following ingredients….

2 cl. Cherry Heering
1.5 cl. Bitter Truth Sloe gin
4 cl. Aalborg Taffel Aquavit
3 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
3 cl. Fresh lemon juice
1 cl. Simple Syrup
1 small dash egg white

Shake all ingredients hard for 8 seconds. Double strain into a very chilled Palais glass. Top with 3 cl. soda and stir. Garnish.

(In case you’re wondering, 3 cl. is about 1 ounce.)

Does that explain what a sling is? Not really? Perhaps the best idea is to fix up a sling of your own and stop worrying about it. Here’s a Singapore Sling recipe from Gary (gaz) Regan’s indispensable tome, The Joy Of Mixology. Don’t be afraid to muck about with it — switching out ratios, base spirits, citrus, you name it (I recently made one using Basil Hayden’s bourbon in place of gin). After all, the Singapore Sling isn’t just a cocktail, it’s a category. Get it now?

Gaz Regan’s Singapore Sling recipe:

2 oz. London dry gin (gaz recommends Beefeater)
1/2 oz. Cherry Heering
1/4 oz. Benedictine
1/2 oz. triple sec
2 oz. pineapple juice
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
Angostura bitters to taste
Club soda

Shake everything except the club soda, and strain into an ice-filled Collins glass. Top with club soda.


Beer cocktails are here to stay


Jacobsen Brewhouse and liqueur producer Peter F. Heering in exclusive partnership

The combination of beer and cocktails have grown at bars in New York and Los Angeles as well as in cities across Europe for many years. Although both are an established part of Danish culture is the phenomenon beer cocktails not yet widely distributed in Denmark. It inspired Jacobsen Brewhouse and liqueur Dynasty Peter F. Heering to an exciting collaboration to get the Danish population to realize the combination of beer and liquor, and are therefore launching the beer cocktail Brandy Ale Xander in collaboration with Copenhagen cocktail GILT.

The trend is obvious. Beer cocktails or cocktails mixed with beer are here to stay. For some it may sound like a new gimmick, but the idea of ​​mixing drinks of beer is actually hundreds of years old and originated in 1800s England.Here was the first beer cocktail, Shandy, invented, which you can still get in any English pub with respect for itself. The reinterpretation of the beer cocktail has been a powerful trend in the United States in recent times, while they have experimented with the phenomenon across Europe for several years.

The beer cocktail is also slowly gaining a foothold among the Danes. However, the beer is associated with quite distinct traditions in Denmark, so we maybe have an inclination for being a bit cautious about moving away from something that we know so well. However, it is not something you should be as careful about explains Peter Altenburg, owner of the classic Copenhagen cocktail bars GILT and Holmen’s Canal. The beer cocktail integrates the best of both worlds in unique ways. At Gilt they have, after the introduction of the beer cocktail on the menu, had great demands among the guests for beer cocktails. Peter Altenburg explains:

“There is a very special balance between bitterness and sweetness in beer, that cannot be found in many other products. It has something to do with, how beer is a brought together- and reworked product. This balance as well as the beers hops brings fantastic flavor nuances in cocktails. In addition, are the beers’ bubbles much softer than other carbonated products.”

Jacobsen Brewhouse and liqueur Dynasty Peter F. Heering have, in co-operation with Peter Altenburg, developed a beer cocktail to winter’s dark nights that demonstrates the beer cocktail’s unique flavor interaction. The exclusive beer cocktail is based on the classic cocktail, Brandy Alexander. The caramelized flavor notes of Jacobsen Brown Ale brings out the nutty coffee notes in Coffee Heering to a new level, while the hops in Jacobsen Brown Ale balances the sweetness in cocktails. It gives the cocktail a special depth while also getting the feel of a good Ale, without being too bitter.
