This slightly bitter aperitif was created in 1885 and launched in 1889 by its creator Fernand Moureaux. Gentian roots are macerated in alcohol for several years and this maceration is then double-distilled and blended with herbs and other botanicals that have also been macerated. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 15/04/2012

Appearance

Clear, bright golden yellow with burnished gold highlights. Fat moderately fast falling tears.

Aroma

Dusty turmeric, juniper, dried powdered orange zest with menthol pine and eucalyptus.

Taste

Given the nose, the palate is surprisingly soft, gently dilute, subtly sweet and floral with hints of liquorice roots and restrained bitterness.

Aftertaste

Bitterness grows in the finish as sweet honeyed notes fade with pine and eucalyptus emerging. Balanced bitter sweetness.
