It was imported to Scandinavia in the 18th Century from the Indonesian island of Java. It has a specific color which may vary from golden yellow to dark yellow. Due to the presence of its exotic ingredients, it is characterised by a unique flavor with overtones of almond, banana, chocolate, whisky and even tobacco. Danes or Danish people drink it hot to get warm in the winter or as an accompaniment to the traditional almond cake, Kransekake, especially at birthday and wedding parties.
