Description:
The herb that gives its name to this liqueur plays a very special role in the life and imagination of the inhabitants of Provence.

Farigoule is a traditional liqueur in Provence. Many families, and farmers in particular, make it from harvesting thyme and marc. Distilleries Provence Farigoule is a direct result of this tradition. The name Farigoule comes from the Latin fericula; it means small wild herb.

This liqueur uses an infusion, a Provencal thyme (Thymus vulgaris) spirit, sugar cane syrup, sugar caramel syrup and alcohol for its base.

The thyme is picked just when it blossoms in the spring or early in the autumn. It is macerated then distilled. The mixture of the flowering tops and dried leaves gives Farigoule a better aromatic balance.

Infinitesimal doses of herbs are added, such as sage, lemon verbena and angelica, to make Farigoule more characteristic of the region.

Farigoule liqueur may be enjoyed straight up or chilled.

Granite a la Farigoule : in a liqueur glass, add some crushed ice, and pour in Farigoule. Then put the glass in the freezer. Enjoy this drink ice cold.

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.
