(Description of an impressive Rumpolt lunch--but I didn't think any of his menus had a mere five or ten dishes, even for a farmer.)

The cordial was brandy based, with fresh ginger, honey, white pepper, clove
and cinnamon, considerably less of the latter three than the ginger. It was
very smooth, and the undertones bloomed in the mouth after the swallow.

I've never looked into cordials--for one thing, they are forbidden for my persona. What sort of sources do we have for them?
