St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur

$37.99

 
St-Germain is a premium, all-natural elderflower liqueur developed by the Cooper family, who first imported Chambord to the US, and also recently introduced us to another exceptional French liqueur, Domain de Canton.

The Cooper family's unique and uber careful process which starts with exclusively fresh elderflower blossoms, meticulously hand-picked during their short, 4-6 week bloom in late spring, and then biked down from the Alps to several small collection stations. The amount gathered during this short harvest period will yield the entire annual production of St-Germain Liqueur.

96-100 Points – Wine Enthusiast

“The seductive bouquet offers wonderfully floral, fruity, guava- and melon-like fragrances of elderflower, becoming richly pear- and quince-like following aeration time. The palate entry is soft and firm; the midpalate is integrated, harmonious and exquisitely balanced between alcohol level, sweetness, acidity and floral impact. A perfect liqueur.” – 96-100 points, Classic/Highest Recommendation – Wine Enthusiast

“Superb clarity. A totally seductive bouquet of the first rank. The palate entry is soft, yet firm; flowery, yet neither oily nor cloying; by the midpalate point, the flavor profile offers an ideal taste experience that’s integrated, harmonious, and exquisitely balanced between alcohol level, sweetness, acidity, and floral impact. A perfect liqueur.” – Spirit Journal – 5 Stars, Highest Recommendation – Paul Palcult, Spirit Journal

“It’s the best liqueur to come out in 75 years… It goes well with everything. I’ve never seen anything as mixable since sugar. It goes just as well with rye whiskey as it does with Champagne.” John Lermayer, Bartender, Regent Cocktail Club, Gale South Beach Miami

Crafted in the artisanal French style, the fresh St-
Germain elderflowers are married with eau de vie, and macerated, in small batches, utilizing a new “secret process” developed to extract the delicate flavor and preserve the freshness and flavor of the fragile elderberry flower blossoms. Continuing in the old-world methods, the resulting St-Germain spirit is married with just enough sugar to enhance the natural flavor of the blossoms. Each bottle of St-Germain is numbered and marked with the vintage year, which reflects the year in which the flowers were harvested.

The resulting liqueur is the finest of its kind, offering a sweet, one-of-a-kind flavor with a sugar content roughly half that of other liqueurs, containing subtle essences of peach, pear, orange, lemon, lychee, passion fruit, and grapefruit. The delicate, captivating, St-Germain delivers an impeccable balance between sweet and dry.

St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur has an understated yet unmistakable presence, able to hold its own when combined with most distilled spirits, and is a natural complement to Champagne and white wine, giving way to innumerable first-class cocktails. This elegant, French-inspired bottle should have a place on the back bar of any cocktail enthusiast!
