Pumpkin King Cordial is an all-natural artisan liqueur made with fresh roasted Munson Farms pie pumpkins, award-winning Roundhouse Gin, and traditional spices. Only 5 miles from the fields to the distillery … that’s as local as it gets!
Beloved Munson Farms harvests Baby Bear Pie Pumpkins at the peak or ripeness in its fields less than five miles from our distillery. Those pumpkins are cleaned, roasted and puréed before being married to Roundhouse Gin and additional spices including clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger. The final steps involve adding a touch of pure cane sugar and filtering for clarity.
The balance between pumpkin flavor, sweetness, and spices is a delicate dance that distiller Ted Palmer successfully achieves with his twenty years of experience. Ted experimented for three years before perfecting this recipe. Pumpkin King Cordial is made at 60 proof with enough explosive pumpkin flavor to accommodate non-alcoholic mixers in beautiful cocktails.
The production for 2014 is very limited. Roundhouse roasted a bit over 10,000 pounds of pumpkins, which will make about 10,000 of the half-bottles (375ml) in which Pumpkin King Cordial is sold. Colorado alone has about 5 million people which means that only 1 in every 500 residents could get a bottle in Roundhouse’s home state. However, New York and Chicago have demanded their fair share making distribution spread much thinner.
Perfect with a dab of whipped cream or delicious mixed with a bit of eggnog, ginger beer, mocha, caffé latte, or apple cider. It’s also a delight over vanilla ice cream or even to soak a crusty slice of pumpkin pie.
