Full Description
Mechitharine liqueurs are some of the most popular sweetened spirits across Austria. It has been manufactured since 1889 by the Mekhitarist Order in Vienna.

A classically European drink (with oriental touch), Mechitharine liqueurs stand out from the rest because of their strong alcohol content (alcohol by volume: 30%) and rich flavour. The lush, rural Austrian countryside is absolutely perfect for growing the sweet fruits and aromatic herbs that feature prominently in liqueur ingredient lists, and centuries of distillery knowledge have perfected the art of creating the spirit. The famous liqueur, which was at the time supplied to the court of the Emperor of Austria, is made from exotic fruits, 42 herbs, roots, and spices, with no synthetic or chemical additives. The recipe, which was brought by Monastery founder Mkhitar of Sebaste from Constantinople to Venice (in the 1700s), is kept strictly secret.
