The story goes that in 1842 the youngest employee accidentally mixed orange liqueur with a bitter. This mistake almost costs him his job but because the resulting liqueur had such a perfect taste he was allowed to stay. Nowadays the Half and Half has become one of the best sold WF liqueurs by far. The liqueur contains orange, cinnamon, cloves and a little anise and some bitters like galangal and gentian. Together all these components result in the bitter flavour for which Half and Half is known.
