Amber liquor - cure for everything?

Baltic Amber

Made a bottle of amber liqueur.

Used 98% Alc/vol Spirit (spirytus) over grains of natural Baltic amber.

It tastes wicked, sort of like PineSol, but man-oh-man is it ever potent. One shot glass of this stuff does what a bottle of wine used to.

Had one shot and wrote a whole chapter of my novel.

By the way, the liquor is for medicinal purposes. Amber vodka in Polish folk medicine is said to be a remedy for: flu, asthma, rheumatism, pneumonia, and heart ailments (?), and as I found out it aids creativity too.

Here's how to make it.

Ingredients, per 250ml:

  1. 98% spirit (had to import it from Europe - not available here)

  2. 20 - 40 grains of amber

Place amber in the bottle, add the spirit. Cap. Wait five days.

How to use:

1: Add a few drops to tea, or whatever you are going to drink. 2: Rub into sore joints.

You can use the same amber twice.

One shot glass cured my sore throat and, I swear, I felt rejuvenated - could not stop jumping, it was so potent ;)


  1. I'm very intrigued by this liquor. Can you tell me where I can buy the amber needed to make it?

  2. Try Ebay: raw baltic amber. It'll most likely be sold as a necklace, but it's OK, just remove the string.

  3. It have to be a raw amber. Don't use necklace, it's polish with the heat . Bag of raw amber you can buy it at Tucson "Gem Show" (january/february every year) from the polish amber dealer.
    Rince the amber with water before you cover with alkohol.The best it's after 2 weeks.

  4. You can buy spirit in USA at Food City grocery store as "Grain Allkohol" for $17. It's the same 98 %.

  5. yep, you can buy polished or raw amber necklace; in Poland raw amber necklaces are worn around the neck, or a wrist, to ease certain ailments (I have a couple of those -- thanks grandma!) Just be sure to ask for raw amber.
