My brother-in-law made several bottles of Kummel as Christmas gifts. This recipe produced what everyone agreed was a very superb liqueur, much superior to commercial brands. I do not normally drink alcohol, but this concoction is so pleasant to the palate that I have returned here for the recipe so as to make my own.
