St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur

St. Germain St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur

$40.00
St-Germain is a unique and remarkable French liqueur created using fresh, wild elderflowers, hand-picked at their peak of flavor and aroma. Persuading the fragile elderflower to give up its prized essence requires the ingenuity and inventiveness learned from over 100 years of experience crafting the finest liqueurs. To this we add our technique of careful, rapid and continuous maceration of the elderflowers to make the freshest and most enjoyable flavor possible. The result is the only exquisitely fresh and natural flavor of elderflowers available in a finely crafted, perfectly balanced and refined liqueur.

Throughout Europe the elderflower has been valued for thousands of years, blossoming for a few fleeting weeks each Spring. Extracts and oils derived from this plant have been enjoyed medicinally and mystically for centuries. But it took until the end of the 20th century for Rob Cooper to unlock the elderflower’s greatest secrets.

Bottle Size: 750ml

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Aroma

    Intense floral, elderflower notes combined with citrusy elements and a hint of passion fruit.
  • Palate

    Tropical fruits, grapefruit and pear, with a hint of honeysuckle.
  • Color

    Pale yellow with gold tonality, which comes from the pollen of the elderflowers.
  • No Preservatives

    In creating St-Germain, no preservatives, additives or stabilizers are used. Thus, its pale golden color may eventually darken over time. This is perfectly natural and will not alter the taste.

“One of the most influential cocktail components introduced in the last decade.” - New York Times


Origins

Elderflowers grow wild in Europe and come into bloom for a brief period in late Spring. St-Germain uses only fresh elderflowers (never dried or frozen) so the harvest is rare and valuable. The tiny, starry white blossoms are hand-picked and selected carefully by skilled gatherers. Only the best quality flowers are kept and will ultimately become the very essence of our liqueur. The fresh flowers are then macerated in hot water to create an extract, the recipe for which is a closely guarded secret. The result is a 100% natural elderflower extract that gives St-Germain its unique, fresh flavor.

Ironically, for a liqueur destined to assist in the slowing down and savoring of the moment, St‑Germain begins with something of a race against time.

Descending the hillsides, diligent flower-gatherers carefully usher the umbrellas of starry white flowers back to the village, often by bicycle. In just a few short weeks, all of the elderflowers that will become St‑Germain for that year will be harvested. And then... Fini. That is why each bottle of St‑Germain is individually numbered: to reflect the year in which the flowers were picked. St‑Germain is made in a slow, charmingly inefficient way, utilizing age-old French techniques. Hence, as a liqueur it is at once complex, pleasing and exceedingly rare. Neither passionfruit nor pear, grapefruit nor lemon, the sublime taste of St-Germain is a flavor as subtle and delicate as it is captivating.
