Located in Daylesford at the Old Butter Factory, we spent a delightful morning at Herbal Lore Liqueurs.

Always up for a taste sensation, these liqueurs promise to take you on an energy journey deep within your soul and evoke healing memories.

Experience their liqueur chocolates, liqueur fruits and specialty ports and liqueurs whilst relaxing with friends over a lovely tasting platter.

We discovered this lovely business whilst having a holiday in Daylesford and we were warmly welcomed and offered a sample range. Rather than just "let's try some liqueurs", they were beautifully displayed in front of us and the story was told to us like an unfolding adventure.

It was explained that in order to make the world's most unique and finest herbal liqueurs, each one was blended with organic, distilled herbs and a neutral grape base.

Being herbal based, each one had an energetic resonance which shared our personal soul journey, highlighted areas we were working on in our lives and to the skilled staff at Herbal Lore, unfolded our innermost nature and our areas in life we had worked well to overcome.

I was a little sceptical, however as the story unravelled, I found it really did highlight our strengths and weaknesses and areas we were working on in life.

We also discovered the ones we really liked, opposed to the ones we didn't like, which highlighted either our resistance to change in these areas and our willingness to embrace change.

Never have we had such a fascinating wine tasting experience; it was like we were sitting in front of a skilled fortune teller.

The liqueurs were delicious, the presentation beautiful, the glasses, a treasure to drink from and yes, we stocked up, not only for ourselves, but with beautiful and unique gifts also.

But wait, there's more! These highly specialised elixirs have now been blended to create fine, rich herbal liqueur chocolates and fruit - perfect for the most discerning foodie. We savoured our tasty treats, nibbling delicately on the delicious chocolates.

In order to complete a beautiful experience, the ambiance must be perfect too and Herbal Lore have worked hard to create just that. They have extensively renovated the premises (they tell us it is a labour of love that took over two years and is still changing). It has been a completely renovated building, which formerly housed the Old Butter Factory, Daylesford - a beautiful, historic landmark offering time honoured tradition and excellence.

Taking you back to an era of pageantry, romance, mystery and passion, they explain that, it aims to create a sense of Arthurian legend. They want you to be immersed in the magic of Merlin, the beauty of Guinevere, the passion and strength of Arthur as you capture the pleasures of Herbal Lore.

So how does it work: For centuries herbs have been known for their healing qualities and have been utilised to support the health and wellbeing of countless individuals. Herbal Lore's liqueurs have been created by master alchemist, Roger McLean, especially for health, vitality and great taste.

The flavour from Australian organically grown, hand-picked herbs is gently extracted using traditional methods, then aged in specially coopered vats made from selected oak staves.

Herbal Lore also offer take-home gifts for yourself and family and are delighted to organise your next special event, conference or meeting. They also organise small, intimate encounters.

Why: Herbal Lore Liqueurs - manufacture, tastings and sales - for health, vitality and great taste.

Here is a bit of the summary of our liqueur adventure:
*Extract from Herbal Lore website
The original Herbal Lore Liqueurs consist of two different yet connected lines. Each of the two categories presents three distinctive liqueurs which vary in intensity of flavour and herbal characteristics. These categories are the Golden Liqueurs and the Cimmerian Liqueurs. Since these original blends, Roger has continued to develop the range with Ginseng Liqueur and Midnight Desire now added to the collection for your benefit and enjoyment.

You can view the entire range of Herbal Lore Healing Liqueurs & Chocolates products by heading to the official website.

You are most welcome to visit and purchase all their products at their cellar door or if you cannot get here in person they also offer online sales.
