THE KENDAL MINT CAKE CO

CREATED IN 1990 FROM AN ORGINAL RECIPE


Created in 1990 from an original recipe, Kendal Mint Cake Liqueur is the brainchild of Mike Pennington, owner of Burgundys Wine Bar & Brewhouse in Kendal. Taking inspiration from the legendary Kendal Mint Cake; famous for having been taken to the top of Everest with Sir Edmond Hillary, Mike used his mixing skills to create an alcoholic liqueur from the peppermint cake recipe blended with a hint of smooth chocolate much to the delight of his customers ever since. Due to growing demand for the liqueur, a company was set up to deliver the product across the world. Applauded for its ultra clean, smooth and delicious blend of fresh mint and chocolate and loved for its authentic and unique take on the heritage of Kendal Mint Cake, it has become a favourite of locals and visitors to Kendal alike. We invite you to enjoy Kendal Mint Cake Liqueur as an apéritif, after dinner delight or simply on it’s own, preferably in the company of good friends!

“Candy is dandy, but liqueur is quicker”
