Bénédictine is based on neutral spirit and flavoured with 27 different herbs and spices with saffron to give the amber hue. These herbs are used in four different preparations, three using distillations and one maceration, all aged independently before blending and further ageing.

Bénédictine is good served long with soda or tonic and is closely associated with classic cocktails such as the Singapore Sling, Vieux Carré and La Louisiane. Bénédictine mixes well with cognac, whisk(e)y, gin and vodka. Also to try 1 part Bénédictine with 3 parts hot jasmine tea as a toddy.
