Craft Liqueurs Diversify Traditional Crème Brulee

The Verdenoce Pistachio Crème Brulee Amps Up After-Dinner Experience

Pistachio Creme Brulee
Try Dumante Verdenoce Pistachio Creme Brulee

One of our favorite desserts is crème brulee and is best described by Gourmet De Ville blogger, Michael Cole as, “a chilled creamy texture of custard topped off with a delicate glaze of caramelized sugar”. In Cole’s recent article, “Craft Liqueurs are Diversifying the Dessert Scene” the argument for including craft liqueurs into the traditional crème brulee recipe is made due to a rising interest in them. We were thrilled to see Dumante Verdenoce’s Pistachio Crème Brulee as the suggested recipe for your next dessert adventure. The article also refers to a crème brulee recipe made with coffee liqueur, and Cole gives readers, especially those new to baking, a helpful tip.

“The recipe is just a few steps long but the overall time required for completing the process is around 5 hours to allow the custard to cool before glazing. Texture is everything here so make sure to follow the last part of the recipe very closely.”

The Verdenoce Pistachio Crème Brulee, found right here on, is the embodiment of Cole’s argument that artisan or craft liqueurs like Verdenoce deserve a place in confectionary consideration due to its high quality ingredients like Italian molasses-base liqueur. This base-liqueur allows for an intense and long lasting flavor that would not be possible with a grain-base spirit. Cole ends it best by urging readers to, “experiment with local craft liqueurs and see what you come up with!” Du Passion…Du Dumante!
