The Rheinberg herbal digestif and Why Underberg is more than a digestif

Underberg is a herbal digestif that only contains water, alcohol, and herbal extracts. Nothing else.

Selected aromatic herbs from 43 countries are essential to Underberg’s all-natural recipe.

The recipe and processing methods have been secrets held and guarded by members of the Underberg family, since 1846. This experience and knowledge regarding how to carefully extract the valuable herbal essences from 43 countries and how to turn them into an aromatic drink has been safeguarded by the SEMPER IDEM secret procedure. This is followed by several-month long maturation periods in casks made of Slovenian oak.

For more information please check out their homepage.

Underberg is a family lead business since 1846

4th and 5th-generation members of the Underberg family carefully select herbs from 43 countries.

But Underberg is much more than a simple bitter or amaro ― Underberg is unique and inimitable. Aaaaand…. its a perfect flavor addition in savory and sweet dishes. The tangy herbal flavors are a great addition for meat or sweet chocolate recipes for example.

Underberg digestif adds a delicious tangy flavor to my cranberry tangerine glaze recipe

Since the most wonderful time of the year started a couple of weeks ago it was crystal clear for me that I wanted to create a special savory recipe with Underberg digestif.

My family is always enjoying one of the Christmas holidays with a delicious roasted turkey or some delicious roasted chickens. Everybody from my brother to my sister and of course my parents are coming over. What makes a roasted turkey or chicken special ? The glaze ❤️.

Tangerines and cranberries are my favorite winter fruits and therefore they had to go into my glaze.

The recipe: We start with the chicken.

  • Firstly I’m washing and drying the chicken and season the inside with a good amount of salt.
  • Im stuffing the inside of the chicken with tangerines halves and sage leaves.
  • Then I’m rubbing the butter salt mixture all over the chicken and under the skin of the chicken. We want some crispy buttery chicken right?
  • Before the chicken goes into the oven I twine the legs together, place the chicken into a roasting pan /large casserole on a bed of onion rings. Cooking the chicken for 15min at 210°Celsius air circulation .
