Crème de Pamplemousse Rose (Pink Grapefruit), 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

Giffard Pamplemousse is made by extracting the essential oils found in grapefruit peels through steam distillation. This keeps the liqueur true to the fruit with a bright, aromatic quality and the balanced bitterness and tartness of fresh pink grapefruit. This liqueur smells of fresh-cut grapefruit with a hint of sweetness. On the palate, juicy citrus notes play with the grapefruit’s natural acidity. 16% ABV
