Flavored Liqueurs You NEED
to Try at Thunderbird Park

The Tamborine tasting board here at the Rainforest Restaurant & Lounge bar

We serve a collection of liqueurs locally sourced from Tamborine Mountain Distillery that has been a massive hit with all our guests that have had the joy of purchasing our tasting board at our Rainforest Restaurant & Lounge Bar. The liqueur is a spirit-based drink to which flavouring elements have been added, usually by infusion, distillation, percolation or maceration in a traditional alcohol spirit base.

Unlike most other distilleries, Tamborine Mountain Distillery do not use a fortified wine base to escape the high excise duty in Australia. They use a large variety of aromatic ingredients from herbs, fruit, seeds, spices, nuts, roots and flower extracts, through to a range of unique native Australian flora. Their wonderful aromas are exquisitely smooth, were the clean tastes linger on the palate long after you've finished the drink.

 

Our Tasting Board - $18 for 3

Treat yourself to three different flavors of liqueur for just $18 at our Rainforest Restuarant Lounge & Bar. We have a list of 24 delectable flavours that you can choose from for your tasting board. However we would suggest opting for our top three best selling flavors that will leave you with a divine tasteful palate lingering after every drink.

Top 3 Liqueur Flavors:

3. Butter Caramel Liqueur

Rich, velvety and smooth. Butterscotch type sweet caramelized sugar taste with a creamy texture. Slight undertones of vanilla and chocolate are finished with caramel and coffee notes.

2. Choc Mint

Pale, translucent sienna brown. A superb perfume of Dark Chocolate and Peppermint delivering terrific intensity and purity. It repeats on the palate with medium dry, choc-peppermint flavours rounded off by an impressive fresh cool mint aftertaste that shows excellent staying power.

1. Wattle Toffee

The Wattle flower is the well-known emblem of Australia and is represented in the green and gold worn by Australian athletes. The seeds of the Acacia Wattle have very hard husks, and when they fall to the ground, will last for up to 20 years in their natural environment, often only germinating after bushfires.

A genuine Australian bush flavour, wattle seeds exemplify expressions of grain, nut, coffee and occasionally chocolate when roasted. These are flavours that work beautifully when blended with the intensity of rich toffee. TMD's award winning and best-selling Wattle Toffee Liqueur exudes a particularly rich nuttiness that marries perfectly with any dark spirit, especially rum, allowing both Liqueur and dark spirit to shine together.

Wild Forest & Plum
Bright garnet colour. Rich aromas of raspberries, sour cherry, and beet with a satiny, tangy, moderately sweet medium-to-full body and a warming, layered, long green apple, celery, and parsley root finish. A delicious and deep fruit Liqueur that will be a pleasure to mix with.

Butter Whiskey
Golden rich amber colour. Delicate aromas and flavours reminiscent of caramelised nut, vanilla custard, coconut, and warm honey with a silky, bright, moderately sweet medium body and a warming, complex, medium-long finish with woody notes of brown spices. A delicious whiskey Liqueur with slight bourbon character.

Turkish Delight
Clear, very pale pink blush. Aroma is penetrating and redolent of Turkish Delight and gets more nougat-like with time in the glass. A light entry builds into a moderately concentrated and expectedly sweet Turkish Delight / nougat profile that's more cocoa like at the finish. Brisk aftertaste, though the sweetness is slightly tempered here.

Wattle Toffee
A genuine Australian bush flavour, wattle seeds exemplify expressions of grain, nut, coffee and occasionally chocolate when roasted. These are flavours that work beautifully when blended with the intensity of rich toffee. TMD's award winning and best-selling Wattle Toffee Liqueur exudes a particularly rich nuttiness that marries perfectly with any dark spirit, especially rum, allowing both Liqueur and dark spirit to shine together.

Choc & Chili
Silky smooth chocolate follows with a kick of hot chili for a surprising twist that is different and unexpected. From the sweet start to the hint of heat in the finish. There's sweet chocolate with subtle caramel notes, followed by the tingly and growing warmth of hot chili peppers.

B.O.S.C
A beautiful higher alcohol content Citrus Liqueur combining oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit.

Honey Dew Melon
Clear, very pale turquoise and green. Good authenticity with a lifted whiff of ripe cantaloupe/ watermelon that doesn't fragrance in the least over time in the glass. The palate offers a convincing, concentrated burst of ripe melon and has just enough acidity to avoid being too sweet. Leaves a beautiful lingering taste. Concludes reasonably fresh and with a decent length.

Musk
TMD Musk Liqueur flavour and aroma is quite floral, reminiscent of musk perfume. It is just like the musk lolly stick - but with a kick at the end!

Jaffa
The primary flavour of TMD Jaffa Liqueur is a rich, bitter-sweet chocolate. The dense chocolate is cut with the sweet and sour taste of oranges. A very popular liqueur for Australian and New Zealanders, bringing back happy childhood memories of one of their favourite lollies.

Coconut
TMD Coconut Liqueur captures the taste of a tropical beach with a delicious blend of coconut flavours crafted with the utmost care to create a smooth, easy drinking Caribbean inspired beverage.

Banana
A delicious banana flavoured Liqueur with added sweetness.

Lychee & Elder Flower
Delicate, with plenty of sweet aromas of Elderflower on the nose.Subtle but rich on the palate then mellows quickly with the Lychee flavours cutting through. Although short, a fragrance of elderflower still lingers.

Dutch Salty Liquorice
Our Salty Liquorice Liqueur has an astringent, sea salt taste, which has been described as "tongue-numbing" and "almost-stinging". Salty Liquorice is an acquired taste, and not for the faint hearted. Many in Finland, Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands learn to love its sharp, sour flavours during childhood.

Coffee
Strong and flavoursome, this medium to full strength coffee Liqueur that hits your palate with notes of burnt whisky barrel and delightful aromas of freshly brewed coffee. The finish is strong with warm notes of burnt caramel and oak.

Vodka Caramel
Delicious and inviting with notes of caramel, toffee, white chocolate and coffee. During manufacture the vodka is infused with caramel to create a soft, delicious profile. This enticing Liqueur is full of rich and creamy smoothness, creating a versatile Liqueur full of familiar flavours. As the Vodka replaces the traditional spirit and hence the drink is even better served chilled.

Gingerbread
This smooth Liqueur is one of our favourites during the festive seasons, it is flavoured with the signature spices found in gingerbread. It brings back happy childhood memories of mother's kitchen and country fairs with the smell and taste of home-made cookies.

Salty Caramel
Sweet caramel taste that is perfectly paired with fine sea salt for a smooth and delicious Liqueur.

Guava & Lime
Light peach colour, with this lovely balanced liqueur. The nose is filled with the scents of ripe, sweet guava and tropical fruits with a clean refreshing taste of lime. The palate echoes the nose being lush and fruity and allows the citrus notes to shine through.

Cherry
Intense aromas of sour black cherries. The spicy notes from the nose are noticeably absent initially. The finish is intense in cherry flavours which slowly dissipate, leaving a subtly spicy finish, reminiscent of cloves. The balance between sweetness and spiciness is superb.
