Description:
Almond trees are native to Afghanistan, but were brought to Provence in the 5th century B.C.

Almond trees adjust perfectly to the climate and soil of Haute Provence. Provencal gastronomy uses almonds in many ways. Barley water and almond liqueur are beverages made from almonds.

This liqueur has a base of essence of bitter almond from Provence, cherry spirit, cherry, peach and vanilla infusions, cane sugar, and brandies of Provence.

The dominant aroma is almond, but the infusions and cherry spirit heighten the product's flavour thanks to their specific walnut aroma. The peach and vanilla infusions give the Amandine its structure and make it fruity.

Amandine is a liqueur that is enjoyed as a digestive. Amandine is also used for the Lou Parpaillou : 1/6 Amandine and 5/6 Bau Frizzant De Muscat.

Amandine may be served over vanilla ice cream, chocolate pears and with pear tarts or Twelfth Night cakes.

Producer Information

In "Pays de Forcalquier", located in Haute Provence, a region in the South of France, Distilleries et Domaines de Provence have been making aperitifs and liqueurs from Provence for over one hundred years. Les Distilleries et Domaines de Provence, founded in 1898, have inherited a tradition that is several thousand years old : harvesting medicinal herbs from Montagne de Lure, famous for its rich and abundant plant spices.
Beginning in the Middle Ages, the people who harvested the medicinal herbs became peddlers, and sometimes the herbs were already in the form of distilled products.
In the 17th and 18th centuries, these peddlers set up shop in many towns in the region as general merchants or apothecaries. In the 19th century, some of them became pharmacists, while others became distillers, and some
ventured into both fields. The specialty products they made from the plants of Lure are in many cases drinks or beverages that have depurative, tonic, digestive, or refreshing qualities, or they may stimulate the appetite.
Wine and alcohol, maceration and distillation are methods used to extract the aromas and active ingredients from the plants and to preserve them.
Distillers did not begin to make a specialty out of the production of liqueurs and aperitifs until the end of the century.
Today, this know-how has been perpetuated for over one hundred years within one and the same company, Les Distilleries et Domaines de Provence, and is being spread worldwide, to the delight of aficionados of spirits.
