Screw / Stelvin cap
This vivid purple liqueur is based on armagnac and other brandies and is flavoured with an infusion of violets and vanilla. It is mad by Benoit Serres, a family concern in Villefrance-de-Lauragais, southeast of Toulouse in the south of France according to a recipe created in the 1950s.
Clear (although sediment visible in bottle of bottle), vibrant violet with turquoise blue highlights - reminiscent of mentholated spirits.
Perfumed floral violet blossom with white cacao and the merest whiff of carbolic soap notes.
Fabulous, clean, intensely Parma Violet flavoured palate with a slight chocolaty soapy note.
Lingering Parma Violet with slight peppery citrus acidity helping to balance syrupiness.
