Crème de Violette, 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

An infusion of violet petals and the steam distillation of violet leaves is used to capture the true purple essence of this delicate flower.  Its vivid purple color holds up beautifully, and with less needed than the competitors, giving cocktails like the Aviation their signature lavender tone. 16% ABV
