Floral Liqueurs

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.

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!!!
