Robert Cooper is a third generation distiller, entrepreneur and creator of liquor brands - best known for building/creating Chambord Raspberry Liqueur.

Rob has been working on creating a high quality elderflower liqueur since 2002 when he realised what an important cocktail ingredient the non-alcoholic elderflower cordials were becoming in London.

Handpicked small white blossoms from the French Alps where elder bushes grow abundantly were preferred for the maceration. Hungarian and Romanian gypsies trawl the mountain-sides to handpick the small white blossoms.

St. Germain's packaging reflects the artisan nature of its production. The shapely eight-sided bottle was created as a tribute to the vibrant art deco period in St. Germain. Each is finished with a heavy stopper and individually numbered and marked with the vintage year.

Why the name? On his frequent trips to the Alps and distillery while developing the liqueur, Rob Cooper would fly in and out of Paris. On the way he fell in love with Saint-Germain-des-Pres and its cafes.

I have to admit, I wasn\'t overly impressed when I first tried this one, but that may have been because I was drinking it neat. Mixed about 50/50 with lemonade, it makes for a fantastic drink, which I would wholeheartedly recommend.
