Launched in 2007, St-Germain liqueur has established itself in the world of mixology as an ode to France and a tribute to the mythical Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, from which it takes its name.
Made from 1,000 of the very best elderflower blossoms, hand-picked and then macerated, St-Germain offers, without any preservatives or artificial flavours, the quintessence of a spring bouquet from the pre-mountainous heights of Europe. Nose: intense, aromatic and fruity but fine and elegant, with subtle floral notes. Palate: tropical fruits ranging from pink grapefruit to mango, pear, but also citrus fruits such as lemon. Finish: long and fresh, like a caress for the palate. In short, unctuous with gourmet and complex notes. “An essential ingredient with 1001 creative possibilities,” confirms Lulu St-Germain, the brand’s ambassador.
St-Germain liqueur (20% alcohol content) can be drunk pure, on ice or in cocktails. Perfect with raspberries and champagne, in a gin and tonic or with Prosecco for a “St-Germain Spritz”, the signature cocktail, to play the Venetians in Paris, boulevard… Saint-Germain, of course!
The result is full of elegance, like this bottle (available in 50 and 70 cl, but also in 20 cl and miniatures to collect) with a look as neat as in perfumery, with curves of rare elegance, magnified by the typography of the gold and night blue label. Each numbered piece bears the circular seal, emblem of the brand and tradition. Like a nod to the 1920s and the Art Deco style. To be proudly placed in your bar, next to the old great French liqueurs. The future is assured!
