Said to be based on an old recipe handed down from Franciscan monks, Monasterium was discontinued in the mid-noughties. It was made at Distillerie Tuoni & Canepa in Tuscany from an infusion of Mediterranean citrus fruits and essential oils from flowers and herbs in neutral spirit.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 25/06/2012

Appearance

Clear, deep canary yellow with tinge of green.

Aroma

Herbal nose with strong alcohol vapours. Génépi, peppermint, vanilla, lime cordial and orange sherbet.

Taste

Sweet but balanced by a powerful wake of peppery alcohol. Medicinal herbal palate echos the nose with orange sherbet and lime cordial predominating, spiced with génépi, peppermint and vanilla.

Aftertaste

Zesty orange sherbet with lingering génépi and black pepper spice.
