Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps Liqueur

Mar 6, 2001
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:sweet, spicy, rich cinnamon flavor, real gold flakes

Cons:price, somewhat limited use

The Bottom Line: This is a wonderful choice for anyone who likes to try new alcoholic beverages.


Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps Liqueur hails from Switzerland. It’s clear appearance is transformed from the bland or boring with the addition of flakes of actual gold in the beverage.

It is 87 proof, which means that it is 43.5% alcohol. To compare, an average wine would only be about 16 proof. Needless to say this is not a liqueur to drink in copious amounts.

It is also not exactly cheap. A 1-liter bottle will cost you about $25.00.

My husband and I have always enjoyed this liqueur as a stand alone. However, according to webtender.com it can be used to make over 100 different mixed drinks.

From the Apple Cobbler that blends it with Irish Cream, and apple schnapps to the Warp Core Breach that blends it with Jack Daniels and Tequilla you can see that this spicy schnapps can actually be quite versatile.

So what is it like?

The aroma is warm and spicy.

The flavor? Did you ever eat “Fireball” candies as a kid? The ones with the fire hot coating which would actually sting as you sucked on them?

Some ingenious but slightly masochistic person developed this liqueur. Yes it is hot. A shot downed in one gulp can bring tears to your eyes. But it is at the same time sweet and rich with a cinnamon lacing. However, taken in tiny sips it is quite pleasant, and can truly warm you up on a cold wintry night.

Initially you will be hit with heat, but it fades to a lingering sweetness that makes you want to go back for another sip.

It is THICK, almost syrupy. The gold flakes are flavorless, totally harmless, but do add a glorious sparkle. Serve it in a tall thin liqueur glass for a truly spectacular sight.

What foods go well with this spirit?

Frankly this is not an alcoholic beverage that would blend well with any entree. It is more meant as a stand-alone drink. However, it would nicely compliment desserts in the cinnamon theme.

What occasions might be most appropriate to drink this spirit?

With its spicy bite and warming heat it makes a perfect addition to your liquor cabinet around the Winter Holidays. can you think of a better toast on New Year's than one that comes with it's own confetti?


Who should buy this spirit? Who shouldn't?

Finally, this is more of a choice for the adventurous taster. Someone who sticks to the same old thing every time they choose to indulge probably won't enjoy this foray into Hot 'n Spicy.
