Kümmel is a sweet, colorless liqueur flavored with caraway seed, cumin and fennel.

Kümmel liqueur was, according to the Dutch, first distilled in Holland during the late 16th century by Erven Lucas Bols. It was then taken to Russia, who is now the principal producer and consumer of kümmel.

The Berlin-made Gilka Kümmel goes through a longer distillation process and has a smoother taste than the Russian kümmels, and it has become the accepted standard of kümmel quality for the past century.
