Sabra is hard to find. I was delighted to find it online. After about 40 years since I last had it (yes, it's that memorable), the bottle has changed somewhat but the exquisite taste has not. Thank you, Wine Chateau!
Terrific product! Absolutely delicious--also great on vanilla frozen yogurt!
I first was given a little bit of this on a holiday in 1966. It was the best liqueur I had ever tasted.
If you have not tried this, you are selling your desert experience short. It is a special present or just for your cabinet for when you want to share a wonderful tasting liqueur!
I don't normally drink, or even like, liqueurs. They are too sweet for my taste. Sabra is an BIG exception. From the chocolatey initial taste to the orange aftertaste, Sabra is wonderful on the palate. We sometimes do the unthinkable, and mix it with a good brandy. Excellent!
I first tried Sabra years ago and loved it. It is my favorite dessert with coffee. I have looked for it it various stores and finally looked online. When I found it all I could think was... YES, YES, YES!
You have to try it! Had a meeting of about 10 woamn at my house and served Sabre. No one had heard of Sabre, everyone wanted a bottle or two. Ended up ording a case and bought a bottle or two. It is not available locallly so we ordered on line from Wine Chateau, all went well. Priced reasonably. Sabre is a drink that tastes like a choclate covered orange. You sip it, and I drink it at room temperature. Love it! My parents used to have about 20 years ago and we had great memories...
Sabra was developed and introduced in 1963 by Edgar Bronfman, Sr., the head of Seagram, to be an identifiably Israeli liqueur. Its name is a term used affectionately to describe a native-born Israeli Jew, a term derived from the Hebrew name of a prickly pear cactus that grows in Israel. The original liqueur was made from this cactus fruit, but did not succeed and was quickly changed to the successful chocolate-orange product. There are now three Sabra liqueurs, all produced by Carmel Winery, and all are kosher and kosher for Passover. The newer products are Sabra Coffee liqueur, launched in 1985, and Grand Sabra, an orange-flavored brandy, launched in 2006. The Sabra bottle design is based on a 2,000-year-old Phoenician wine flask found in a Tel Aviv museum.
As an after dinner liqueur; Ideal chilled or with ice; The perfect ‘gift from Israel’; Also good for cooking & cocktails or with coffee. Excellent poured over ice cream
