The French liqueur lends its herbal complexity and rich honeyed notes to a range of drinks, from the Vieux Carré to the Singapore Sling.It is your responsibility to keep the wines safe and in their original condition until collection is made. If you enjoyed the article, don’t forget to leave me a comment and if you’re feeling like a star, don’t forget that 5-star rating! The incredible story of Bénédictine began in 1510 in the Abbey of Fécamp in Normandy France when the Benedictine monk Dom Bernardo Vincelli created a secret elixir that was to become famous for years to come. Yellow Chartreuse is probably the closest in terms of the herbal bouquet and some amaro and pastis may work, too. French herbal liqueur, Benedictine DOM is a unique and complex blend of 27 herb and spice ingredients which create a rich, full and intense flavour that is balanced with sweetness and a smooth warming taste.

The recipe of Bénédictine is a commercial secret, but it is known to contain 27 herbs and spices, of which the following 21 are publicly known: [ citation needed] angelica, hyssop, juniper, myrrh, saffron, mace, fir cones, aloe, arnica, lemon balm, tea, thyme, coriander, clove, lemon, vanilla, orange peel, honey, red berries, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Distilled and aged in a flamboyant palace, built in Fécamp in tribute to this unique liqueur, Bénédictine is a subtle alchemy of 27 different plants and spices.The recipe disappeared during the French Revolution, but in 1863, wine trader Alexandre Le Grand was said to have found it in his library and set out to recreate Vincelli’s elixir—with a few tweaks. The recipe for Bénédictine is proprietary and one of the "secret" recipes seen so often on the liqueur side of the distilled spirits industry. This lovely gin-base aperitif is the perfect complement to the hot weather, featuring a refreshing concoction of lemon, cucumber, mint, strawberries, and lemonade. This blend is double-heated to finish the flavor before going into oak barrels to age for four months.

None of the botanicals used to make it dominates the blend and it is not medicinal like other herbal liqueurs. I grew up in Singapore, and for many of my Chinese friends there, it is also very traditional to have DOM after having a baby. v=1700935404","width":500},{"alt":null,"id":32234620453177,"position":2,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.

The brand, however, only reveals angelica and saffron, making no other claims or allusions as to what the exact ingredient list entails.
