Learn More About Cordials

The word "cordial" was originally used to describe any "invigorating and stimulating preparation" intended for a medicinal purpose. Various concoctions were created that were believed to be beneficial to one's health, especially for the heart. (Indeed the word for heart in Latin is cordialis.)  

Most cordials were of European origin, first produced in Italian apothecaries by monks during the Renaissance. It is from this origin that cordials are frequently referred to in French as Liqueurs d’ltalie, it is also from this that we have liqueurs. From the Renaissance onward, cordials were usually alcohol-based in which certain herbs or spices were allowed to steep. The first cordials arrived in England in the late 15th century and were called distilled cordial waters. These were strictly used as alcoholic medicines, prescribed in small doses to "invigorate and revitalize" the heart, body and spirit as well as cure diseases. By the 18th century cordials were being enjoyed for their intoxicating effects and medicinal virtues, and were fast becoming recreational drinks, eventually evolving into liqueurs.
