Fruit de la Passion (Passion Fruit), Giffard

Emile 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. Lucky for them (and for us), Emile was also a gourmand, and began researching the digestive properties of mint as he embarked on his endeavor. Using steam distillation of Mitcham peppermint, Emile created a liqueur that was as delicious as it was refreshing. Giffard Menthe Pastille, named after the French candies at the time (the name translates to “mint drop”), found instant popularity with the locals. Emile promptly turned his pharmacy into a distillery and established the tradition and quality for which Giffard is known worldwide. This was only the beginning.

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.
