Brandy

Giffard

REGION:

France

DESCRIPTION:

Characteristic aroma of the fruit with a slight note of stone. On the palate, a powerful combination. Very authentic taste. All the notes of the fruit are present: from the tart taste of the leaf to the almond touch of the stone. Acidulous at the end.

PRODUCER:

At that time, Émile Giffard was a dispensing chemist living in Angers (Val de Loire). 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.

SERVING SUGGESTION:

For aperitif with a dry white, rosé or sparkling wine, or as a topping on vanilla ice cream.
