Blue Curacao, Giffard

Blue Curacao, Giffard

Emilie Giffard was a pharmacist before he was a distiller. It started in 1885, when the scorching heat of the summers in France inspired him to create something that would cool and refresh his clientele. Using steam distillation of Mitcham peppermint, Emile created a Menthe liqueur that was as delicious as it was refreshing. Emilie promptly turned his pharmacy into a distillery and established the tradition and quality for which Giffard is known worldwide. Four generations and over a century later, The Giffard family continues Emilie’s tradition, using the finest ingredients and time-tested methods to create their liqueurs. Today, the care taken to create and produce one remains the same.

Tasting Notes

Curaçao is a Carribean Island where the nearly extinct “laraha” orange, or bitter and sweet orange, is hand harvested and distilled to produce this tangy and fresh liqueur.  The predominant flavor is mellow blood orange with tropical citrus notes.  Called for by name in calssic tiki cocktails and fun way to add color and that bright orange flavor into any beverage.   25% abv
