Tasting Notes

Monastery brew houses and elixir distillers from different religious orders have been in existence all over Europe since the early Middle-Ages. The Cistercians, Benedictines, and Trappists were part of a network of religious houses which exchanged ideas and procedures but also kept a few secrets. Beyond being a place of worship and contemplation, Monastic gardens provided food and medicinal plants to monks and their guests. After careful reading of ancient monastic texts, Vicario crafted this maceration of over 15 aromatic herbs and spices and named it after these famous religious orders.  A bouquet of herbs and spice run through from nose to finish, warming the palate with notes of cinnamon, honey, straw, genepy, tarragon, mint, and clove. It is an exquisitely round and exotic liqueur, and an excellent digestive. 35% ABV.
