Giffard

Giffard Crème de Fraise des Bois Liqueur

$32.99

Fruit Liqueur made from wild strawberry and strawberry infusion. The wild tiny strawberries bring this typical "green"taste to the liqueur, while the bigger sanga-sangana varietal strawberries -which are very sweet and aromatic- counter-balance the taste of wild strawberries.

Very intense and fruity nose, slightly acid fruit freshness.

Acidulous mouth in attack bringing freshness and vivacity. Aromas evolve during the tasting: from the typical “green” taste of wild strawberries to the very ripe fruit taste characteristic of jam and marmalades. Very pleasant end of the mouth.

Emile 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. Lucky for them (and for us), Emile was also a gourmand, and began researching the digestive properties of mint as he embarked on his endeavor. Using steam distillation of Mitcham peppermint, Emile created a liqueur that was as delicious as it was refreshing. Giffard Menthe Pastille, named after the French candies at the time (the name translates to “mint drop”), found instant popularity with the locals. Emile promptly turned his pharmacy into a distillery and established the tradition and quality for which Giffard is known worldwide. This was only the beginning.

Four generations and over a century later, the Giffard family continues Emile’s tradition, using the finest ingredients and time-tested methods to create their liqueurs. Today, the care taken to create and produce each one remains the same.
