Giffard - Creme de Menthe Pastille (Mint)Liqueur
1885, Emile Giffard dispensing pharmacist in Angers undertook research on the digestive and refreshing properties of mint.
He thereby invented a pure, clear and refined white mint liqueur which he tested with the "Grand Hotel"'s customers, in the Ralliement's place.
Success was immediate.
Emile changed his pharmacy into a distillery.
After a double distillation, he obtained an essential oil, which became the main ingredient to do the Menthe Pastille. Digestive and not much alcohol.
Fine and fresh peppermint aroma.
Perfect balance and freshness.
