About Rivulet Pecan Liqueur

Rivulet® Artisan Pecan Liqueur is handcrafted in Louisville, KY. Rivulet starts with a 2-year-old, barrel-aged brandy.  They then use a proprietary process to obtain the exquisite pecan essence, which I know y’all will love. It’s a deep flavor — one that is signature to the brand — and I can’t get enough of it. I also love that it’s local!
