Heerings is a Danish Cherry liqueur, with a history starting in 1818. It  has a bitter sweet medicinal flavour that lends itself well to pepping up things. We have done this with a cherry compote


1kg cherries , de seeded and washed

125g caster sugar

350ml water

3 lengths of orange peel

200ml herring cherry liquor

juice of 1 lemon


1. In a pan, bring  the sugar, water and orange peel to the boil.

2. Add the cherries and poach for for 5 minutes, then spoon out the cherries

3. Add the liqueur and reduce the liquor by half until it is a flowing syrup  and take off the boil.

4.Add back in the cherries and the brandy, We serve ours with a buttermilk pudding and malt biscuit
