St~Germain is a French liqueur made with fresh elderflowers, hand-picked once a year in the late spring. As the world's first, finely crafted all-natural elderflower liqueur, its flavor is as subtle and delicate as it is captivating, evidenced in its sublime notes of peach, pear, and grapefruit, yet none of them exactly. Perhaps contributing to its elusive reputation is that of French savoir faire-an inconspicuous ingredient that is all at once essential to St~Germain's endless charm.
St~Germain plays well with all base spirits.
The seductive bouquet offers wonderfully floral, fruity, guava- and melon-like fragrances of elderflower, becoming richly pear- and quince-like following aeration time. The palate entry is soft and firm; the midpalate is integrated, harmonious and exquisitely balanced between alcohol level, sweetness, acidity and floral impact. A perfect liqueur. - P.P.
