Vermeer

Vermeer Dutch Chocolate Cream Liqueur is a sweet liqueur made of Dutch chocolate, cream, and vodka. It was created by Maurice Kanbar who tested it for five years before presenting the liquer to the public in 2001. Vermeer is 34 U.S. proof (17% alcohol by volume) and the bottles are labeled with an image of Johannes Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring.

Kanbar, who also developed SKYY vodka, wanted to create "a liqueur as perfect as a Vermeer painting." The Vermeer liqueur benefited from the popularity of chocolate in the early 2000s, and was included in the "Chocolate Shows" (held annually in New York City since 1998) of 2001[1] and 2002.

Vermeer is served with ice on the rocks, or it can be mixed in a chocolate martini cocktail or added to coffee or hot chocolate. It is also used to create sauces, such as for ice cream.
