American brands of Eggnog Liquor are Evan Williams made with Whisky, or Christian Brothers (Brandy). The best in my opinion is the more expensive imported Verpoorten with Brandy. All should be available in the US at least 6 weeks before Christmas at the Liquor store. An alternative:

  • Christian Brothers Holiday Eggnog Liquor
  • Evan Williams Eggnog Liquor with Whiskey
  • Eggnog liquor Verpoorten

Verpoorten Eggnog Liquor History

Did you know that the origins of the bright yellow, creamy VERPOORTEN ORIGINAL eggnog lie in the jungle of Brazil? There, the Tupi Guarani Indians brewed a creamy drink called “Abacate”. The main ingredient: the ripe pulp of the avocado. When Portuguese and Dutch sailors landed on the Brazilian coast for the first time in the 17th century, they quickly became enthusiastic about the avocado drink used by the indigenous people of the Amazon. They refined it with cane sugar and rum and called it “advocaat”.

They brought avocado trees with them to Europe on board their ships so that they could make Advocaat at home. Only – the Central European weather did not allow the trees to flourish. A substitute had to be found that was as creamy as the flesh of the avocado.

The Verpoorten distillers worked on the recipe for more than 140 years in the Eugen Verpoorten Liquor Factory . In 1876 and finally found the perfect ingredient: Egg Yolk! The fat contained in the egg yolk forms an emulsion with alcohol and sugar, creating the typical creamy consistency. The eggnog was invented.

Today, VERPOORTEN, located in Bonn, is the fifth generation to produce this Eggnog Liquor according to the closely guarded family recipe. Since 1961, VERPOORTEN has been using the slogan “Ei-Ei-Ei-Verpoorten, whether here or everywhere”. Everyone knows this advertising jingle.

While the Egg Liquor was still the classic companion to an afternoon cup of coffee on Sundays for our parents and grandparents, the yellow classic has now also conquered bars and coffee houses. Young people in particular mix drinks with this gold alcoholic liquid, refine their coffee or bake an Eggnog Liquor Cake or muffins and cupcakes with Eggnog cream as a topping. Creamy smoothies with VERPOORTEN ORIGINAL are also a special treat.
