Likör Under EU spirits legislation, this is a mostly viscous spirit drink obtained by flavouring ethanol or a distillate of agricultural origin or spirits. The alcohol content must be at least 15% to 40%, the sugar content, which is designated as invert sugar, must be at least 100 g/l (exceptions are gentian liqueur at 80 gl and cherry liqueur at 70 g/l). The designation "-creme", preceded by the name of the fruit such as "Weintraubencreme Likör", is reserved for liqueurs with a minimum sugar content of 250 g/l and Cassis (crème de cassis) for liqueurs made from blackcurrants with at least 400 g/l.
