Fruit de la Passion (Passion Fruit), Giffard

Fruit de la Passion (Passion Fruit), Giffard

Émile 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, Émile created a Menthe liqueur that was as delicious as it was refreshing. Émile 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 Émile’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

Everyone knows that passion fruit is the best fruit, right? And, if you disagree, your taste is suspect.  Inherently sweet, sour, and tropically exotic on the nose, this new realease from Giffard is already establishing itself as a favorite in the world of Tiki.  For those who prefer a boozy stirred cocktail, Giffard’s Fruit de Passion is the perfect compliment and counterpoint for dark, spiritous sippers.
