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.
Nectarine was never really on our radar until one year one of our partner farmers convinced us to try it. His father was the very first in the Hudson Valley to plant nectarines in the 1960s and the farm's nectarines have been highly sought after ever since. They are truly one of a kind and as soon as we tried them, given the amazing aroma and juicy profile, we knew it would make a very special liqueur. Fruity and bright on the palate with a lush body, almost hints of apricot, and a soft, lingering finish that will have you smacking your lips for more.
