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.

Sampled on 17/04/2012

Appearance

Clear (although sediment visible in bottle of bottle), vibrant violet with turquoise blue highlights - reminiscent of mentholated spirits.

Aroma

Perfumed floral violet blossom with white cacao and the merest whiff of carbolic soap notes.

Taste

Fabulous, clean, intensely Parma Violet flavoured palate with a slight chocolaty soapy note.

Aftertaste

Lingering Parma Violet with slight peppery citrus acidity helping to balance syrupiness.
