First produced by Lucas Bols in the 16th century in Netherlands, it is now Russia which is the world's principal consumer of kummel (or kümmel, if you prefer), a clear spirit predominantly flavoured by caraway.

Here's one for your party trivia: T he words kümmel, kummel, and kimmel are somewhat generic terms in German, Dutch, and Yiddish, respectively, meaning both caraway and cumin.

It could be argued that this is a forgotten spirit, but it's historical influence and presence in classic cocktails should not be ignored.
