Description:
The first alcohol-based liqueur was called eau divine and admirable. It was nothing more than water with sugar added. It was considered as medicine. Later, people from Haute Provence added herbs from their mountains, genipi, for example.

This is an alcohol-based liqueur, made of sugar cane syrup, an infusion and a Genepi des Alpes spirit, with a soupcon of an infusion of 63 other herbs. The dry genipi maceration (Artemisia glacialis and/or Artemisia mutellina) is the base used for this liqueur. A complex composition of an infusion of herbs and genipi spirit reinforces this product's aromatic power.

Genepi is a liqueur and should be enjoyed straight up, at room temperature or very cold.

Review: I first trid Genepi whilst holidaying in Val D'Isere. I bought this Genepi after my duty free ran out and found this to be even better than the local brew!
The nose is aromatic, honeyed and inviting. The taste is not overly sweet and the plant extracts combine well with tones of spice, honey and herbs. Delicious - Get me back to the slopes!!!

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.
