According to Irving Hirsch:

Cordials are usually produced with spirits as a base. The best cordials have brandy as a base. The flavor is imparted to the cordials by first distilling the fruits or herbs in order to produce an extract, then distilling the brandy with the extract, thereby producing a clean and perfectly homogenous flavor.

Examples of cordials are Chartreuse, Creme de Cacao, Creme de Menthe, and the commercially successful, metallic gold infused Goldschlager.
