Ginger of the Indies, Giffard

Ginger of the Indies, 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

The East Indies are famous for their ginger, and this liqueur is developed from a maceration of ginger root enhanced with vanilla and spices.  This fragrant liqueur has strong notes of ginger and coriander, with soft undertones of vanilla and orange blossom. The palate has a mild sweetness that quickly develops into spicy, fresh ginger balanced by a citrusy acidity. 35% ABV
