St. Germain is a French liquor made from flowers of elderberry, a shrub that grows in the wetlands near the Alps and which blooms for 4-6 weeks a year. It is made in a totally traditional and handmade way. The flowers macerated with grape brandy from the region of Burgundy (mostly white). Once macerated, it is distilled and once it is finished, a part is distilled again. Finally, a minimal amount of cane sugar is added to enhance the natural floral flavor. Take it pure with ice, or with Gin Tonic, and in many cocktails!
At sight it is a bright golden yellow color. He has an intense nose. Floral and herbaceous aromas that appear along with subtle fruity notes of grape and light touches of citrus (grapefruit). It has a delicate and powerful taste in the mouth. Citrus flavors, green grape, exotic fruit (lichy) mixed with floral notes. Bitter and sweet, in a balanced way. Good finale with balsamic final taste.
