About this deal

In 1863 Alexandre Le Grand developed a recipe for an herbal liqueur, helped by a local chemist, from old medicinal recipes that he had acquired from a religious foundation where a maternal grandparent had held office as a fiscal prosecutor.

Imagine brandy mixed with gin and sweetened with honey and you'll have a close idea of the intriguing taste of Bénédictine. Its recipe comes from a 16th-century monk and includes a secret blend of 27 herbs and spices in a neutral spirit that's sweetened with honey. Tasting the two reveals the real distinction: Bénédictine has citrus, cedar, nutmeg, and sage notes and Drambuie is medicinal with notes of grass, licorice, and orange peel.The Palais Bénédictine was built in 1905 in Fécamp, France, and features the Le Grand family’s art collection, which includes old books, sculptures, wrought ironwork, and more. v=1701290891","options":["Size"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":36546368962873,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0. It's inspired by the iconic Black Label and is a fail safe choice for any occasion, perfect for sharing. The recipe has been preserved and to this day, Benedictine is made using the same traditional craftsmanship. Benedictine French liqueur offers a light herbal, spicy fragrance with aromas of dried fruits, a drier palate with soft woody notes, and a mild finish of honey.

TASTING CANCELLATIONS – full refunds can only be made where at least 7 days’ notice is given prior to the event date.Benedictine is still distilled and aged in a flamboyant palace in the Abbey of Fécamp, in Normandy, France. This blend is double-heated to finish the flavor before going into oak barrels to age for four months. This lovely gin-base aperitif is the perfect complement to the hot weather, featuring a refreshing concoction of lemon, cucumber, mint, strawberries, and lemonade. Bénédictine is good served long with soda or tonic and is closely associated with classic cocktails such as the Singapore Sling, Vieux Carré and La Louisiane.
