Benedictine October 21, 2013Posted by Bacchus in : Liqueurs , Email This Post , trackback
At the Benedictine Abbey of Fécamp in Normandy, monks had developed a medicinal aromatic herbal beverage which was produced until the abbey’s devastation during the French Revolution. The recipe is a closely guarded trade secret, ostensibly known to only three people at any given time. Every bottle of Bénédictine has the initials D.O.M. on the label, which stands for “Deo Optimo Maximo” (“To God, most good, most great”).
Benedictine is a sweet cognac-based liqueur, flavored with various aromatics, fruit peels and herbs. Deep amber-orange hue. Pungent spice and herb aromas. A smooth, mildly sweet attack leads to a medium-bodied, mildly viscous palate. Complex, lingering finish. Intense, warming and unique.
