Heimat is an exciting new line of handcrafted liqueurs made in Mamaroneck, NY. Heimat New York (pronounced HI-maht) was founded by Ute Londrigan, who was born and raised in Germany and grew up amidst all the wonderful traditions that Germany has to offer. Fruit liqueurs were, and still are, commonplace in the area. Ute's grandmother made them herself from fruit in her backyard for the family's own use, typically after the afternoon's traditional coffee and cake ("Kaffeeklatsch"). Ute dabbled with her liqueurs over the years but it wasn't until she and her family moved to New York - with the wide variety of fresh fruits at her doorstep, friendly and engaging farmers, and friends who appreciated the taste and authenticity - did the idea really take off. After two years of planning, licensing, creating contacts with farmers, and a whole lot of support from her friends and family, Ute opened the doors to Heimat New York in November 2018.
Just like Heimat New York, Bosc pear traces its roots back to Europe and is picked in Germany at the same time as here. It's also the last fruit of the season for us and from one of our favorite farmers, no less. Bosc pear is not the typical pear that you find in the supermarket, and you can trust us, we've tried them all. Rather, Bosc is the perfect pear that when we apply a few techniques from my Oma, it reveals a wonderful aroma and a complex, lingering, and silky smooth finish.
