I first came across HEILAND beer liqueur earlier this year, when reading about great regional products made by young Bavarians. Brothers Stefan and Max Hofstetter and Kay Thieme have created a superb Bavarian beer liqueur, using Doppelbock beer, rum, sugar and plenty of spices – though the exact recipe is top secret. The young trio spent a good six months perfecting their blend, finally creating HEILAND, a sweet, silky beer liqueur, packed full of flavour.
If you automatically think of your grandma when you think of liqueur, think again. HEILAND isn’t sickly sweet, and the Hofstetters and Thieme are determined to make liqueur a thing for young people – the design is eye-catching and modern, the flavours are sharp and interesting, and it mixes well to create sophisticated cocktails.
HEILAND has very kindly offered to give away three 0.2l bottles of their finest liqueuer to Arts in Munich readers, and all you have to do is send me an email! For a chance to win, send a short mail with your name and address to win @ artsinmunich.com and I’ll choose three lucky winners at random by September 21. Please note that the giveaway is only open to those aged 18 and above.
If you’re don’t manage to win a bottle this time, check out their list of sales points – HEILAND is available to buy in lots of great stores, including the SOUVE BAG COMPANY, the Waldmeister, Vits coffee brewers and Biervana. And if you want to try before you buy, head to the Flushing Meadows rooftop bar, Aroma in the Glockenbachviertel or Nudo.
