The manufacturers of Löwenblut, which is German for “lion’s blood”, possess a sense of humour. On their website, they admit from the get-go to not have stumbled upon the recipe to their cordial in the estate of their great-grandmother - which is what you usually learn as soon as you dive into the background of newer brands. Instead, the family Stemprock adheres to a far more believable story: they came up with the Löwenblut recipe themselves.
Löwenblut is a cordial macerated from 43 different herbs and ripe blackberries. The label sports the beast that used to be the coat of arms to the historic state of Berg - the lion. A clever choice in two ways: it relates to the cordial’s origin, the German city of Düsseldorf, and also anticipates its effect. One sip of Löwenblut revives the spirits. And one taste of Löwenblut will have you yearning for more!
