Benedictine Liqueur two bottle gift set collection one
bottle Benedictine Liqueur and one bottle B&B Liqueur.
Made of herbs, roots and sugar with a Cognac base.
Originally used to revive tired Benedictine monks beginning in 1510, the term
D.O.M. found on the label stands for Deo Optimo Maximo which translates to
"God, most good, most great" reminds us of the liqueur's origins.
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.
Some of the herbs and spices have been used since the
biblical times and many still have a place in folk remedies. The origin of
these plants is like a journey around the world: from Greece to Africa, to
Indonesia, India and so much more.
Bénédictine selects product ingredients from the five continents with quality
as the sole criterion of choice.
B&B By Bénédictine is
one of the oldest premixed cocktails. In the 1930s, during Prohibition in the
United States, a barman at Club 21 in Manhattan came up with the idea of mixing
brandy with Bénédictine. In 1937, Le Palais Bénédictine decided to produce this
by blending 60% Bénédictine with 40% fine French Brandy, allowing the flavours
to rest and harmonise in small, vintage French oak barrels that have previously
been used to age only the finest cognacs.
