Creamy Love story is the most popular in the entire line


While the classic Irish Cream is made on the basis of whiskey, in the cream liqueur “Love Story” for a strong base, ordinary alcohol is taken, so the taste is slightly sharper, the density is lower, and the strength is higher. However, for example, in cocktails, these nuances are not felt at all, and in terms of price-quality ratio, in conditions of a limited budget, there is probably no better option on the Russian market.

To ensure that the emulsion liquor does not delaminate, it inevitably includes chemical additives approved by the food industry. Love Story liqueur is no exception, despite the declared “elitism”, it has flavorings, dyes and thickeners.
