Giffard Cherry Brandy Liqueur
Liqueur – 70cl
It all began during the very hot summer of 1885…
At that time, Émile Giffard was a dispensing chemist living in Angers (Val de Loire).
He had an inventive, inquiring mind, and was a gourmet as well. He took an interest in the digestive and refreshing properties of mint, and ended up concocting a pure, clear and refined white mint liqueur which he promptly put to the test by offering the guests at the Grand Hotel a sip of his cordial as a relief against the heat wave.
Having found instant success, Émile turned his pharmacy into a distillery and named his liqueur Menthe-Pastille , in reference to the tiny mint sweets that were all the rage in those days.
Five generations later, the family business still bears the GIFFARD name and is proud to uphold the high standards of quality instilled by its original creator.
Cherry Brandy – This traditional liqueur is made from maceration of two varieties of cherries (one sweet and the other one bitter) as well as raspberry infusion.
Tasting Notes – Ruby-like red colour.
Very fruity nose, aromatic body characterized by the ripe cherry flavour.
Very pleasant mouth, fresh and fruity. The acidity brings liveliness.
