The incredible story of Bénédictine began in 1510 in the Abbey of Fécamp in Normandy France when the Benedictine monk Dom Bernardo Vincelli created a secret elixir that was to become famous for years to come. Three hundred and fifty years later in 1863 Alexandre Le Grand a merchant and collector of religious art discovered the lost recipe for this elixir in his collection. Intrigued by the discovery and after many attempts he successfully recreated the mysterious liqueur that he called Bénédictine. Distilled and aged in a flamboyant palace built in Fécamp in tribute to this unique liqueur Bénédictine is a subtle alchemy of 27 different plants and spices.
Pronounced and complex aromas offering a wealth of spice and fruit. Cloves, cardamorn and liquorice mingle with honey, butterscotch, prune and orange. Pungent herbal and spicy flavours mingle with a pleasing balanced sweetness.
Drink neat. Add a few ice cubes to loosen the flavours up. Intensely sweet!
