A Bajan liqueur, very tasty and a back bar essential for making some great cocktails. Taylor's Velvet Falernum was first created by John D Taylor of Bridgetown in 1890. The liqueur is made with sugar cane, lime, almond and cloves.
Born and bred on the island of Barbados, this slightly alcoholic sugar cane based liqueur is a staple of every Bajan's bar.
It's special taste comes from a refined infusion of lime laced with fine cane syrup and botanicals including almonds and cloves.
