This delightful liqueur combines the rich and vibrant flavours of UBE, a purple yam native to The Philippines, with the smooth and creamy texture of a traditional cream liqueur. In this blog post, we will explore the origins of ube, the process of creating this one-of-a-kind liqueur, and why you should consider adding it to your collection.
What is Ube and Why is it Special?
Ube, also known as purple yam, is a tuberous root vegetable that is widely treasured in Filipino cuisine. It is known for its vibrant purple colour and sweet, vanilla like flavour. Ube has been a staple ingredient in Filipino desserts for centuries, adding a unique twist to cakes, pastries, and ice creams. It's popularity has spread beyond The Philippines' reverence, captivating the taste buds of food enthusiasts around the world.
How is Ube Cream Liqueur Made?
The process of creating Filipino Ube Cream Liqueur is a labour of love. First, the ube is harvested from the treasured fertile earth of Bohol Islands and carefully selected for its quality and flavour. The Ube is then cooked, mashed, and mixed over a few days. Distilled noble sugar cane from Negros Island, coconut husk from Mindanao and dairy cream is then blended with the star of the show Philippine Ube. This meticulous process ensures that every bottle of Ube Cream Liqueur delivers the authentic taste of UBE in a velvety textured Ube liqueur.
