What is Quiver?

Known in Lithuania as Krupnikas, it is a traditional Lithuanian Spiced Honey Spirit. QUIVER has a delicious and complex flavor, unlike any other spirit or liqueur. It is smooth enough to sip on its own, starting out with sweet honey flavors that build up to a warm spicy finish.

Legend has it that the recipe was created by Benedictine Monks at the Nesvyzius monastery which was founded in the 16th century in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. It became popular among Lithuanian Nobility and today is a wildly favorite family concoction with a coveted secret family recipe.

Versatile and mixable, makes it the perfect spirit for a wide range of popular “retro” and exotic new cocktail concoctions.
