A gorgeous cream liqueur from the Gretzky distillery. Aromas of caramel, toffee, butterscotch and sea salt. Medium-bodied, smooth as liquid velvet. Enjoy on it's own over ice, in a coffee or hot chocolate. Perfect after-dinner treat.

Reviews and Ratings

Courtney Flood rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Decadence!! The name says it all, it tastes like a melted salted caramel sundae with the warmth of 17% and thick, velvety 100% fresh Ontario cream.

Great after dinner over ice, and holds its own with a coffee drink (some cream liquors get overpowered by the coffee). I mixed this into a B52 coffee with 1/2 oz each of Wayne Gretzky salted caramel liquor, Kahlua, and Grand Mariner with a double shot of espresso and a dollop of fresh whipped cream. Yummy!
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

One word describes this Salted Cream Liquor: ”WOW!” Spun toffee and maple walnut ice cream with a kiss of salt. Pour it in your coffee, over cake, or dip gingerbread cookies in it. Reminds me of being a kid, munching on spun toffee. But I’m glad that I’m an adult and old enough to buy this again!
Warning; this is hard to put down!

You had me at Salted Caramel.
A delight on its own or added to your coffee, this is a treat of the senses.
Buttery caramel and white chocolate swirl in the glass and palate.
A lovely hostess gift or a holiday morning coffee treat.
Tasted December 2020.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Great balance and flavour that will give your cream liqueur standbys a run for their money. Aromas of rich caramel and toffee along with a hint of salt. Luscious and full bodied, this is perfect over ice.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Made from Ontario cream and Wayne Gretzky Red Cask Whisky. Expect rich buttery salted caramel notes in this creamy and smooth, way too easy to drink liquor that has just a bit of kick. Delicious over ice, but also amazing in coffee!

Craig Haynes WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Hit the target. The cream liquor offered an enticing aroma flavour profile of spice, coco, caramel and salt… all served with some kick thanks to a 17% abv. This creation features the distillery’s Red Cask whiskey blended with cream from Ontario farmers. Serve solo on ice or atop a scoop of french vanilla ice cream. Enjoy.

Rich, sweet and oh so good! The Wayne Gretzky Salted Caramel Cream liquor is sinful. Its aromas of caramel toffee, mixed with crushed salt, are over the roof. The alcohol keeps the divine structure together and offers supple spice to the infinite orgasmic finish. Made for sipping or on vanilla ice cream, this bottle of happiness will go with anything you have in mind. Palate: crème brulee, caramel, salt and pleasure! Enjoy!
David Skinner rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An after dinner treat on its own or along side your favorite decadent delight. Definitely caramel with that enhancing touch of salinity.

I might serve this with a crème caramel or add it to my affogato!
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This product beats down its imported competitors. They’ve really made an effort here to go a cut above. It’s fresh tasting and the sweetness is not overdone or cloying. Perhaps better suited to desserts than coffee. 89 Points.
