Giffard cleverly picked up on the trend for spice in food and drinks to launch this liqueur made with Espelette peppers in July 2020 as an addition to their Premium range.

Espelette peppers, also known as "Red gold of Basque Country", are grown close to the Atlantic Ocean in the shadow of surrounding hills where they benefit from an almost subtropical microclimate. The Espelette pepper is the only French spice with a DPO recognition.

Giffard's Piment d'Espelette liqueur is made from the infusion of fresh whole Espelette peppers. The liqueur's flavour is enhanced with a little dark Rhum Agricole from Martinique.

Clear, light golden amber.


Spice is very apparent with fragrant vegetal chile pepper (not cracked black pepper). Subtle aromas of sweetcorn, caramel and green bell pepper.


A mellow, delicately sweet caramel entry precludes growing capsaicin heat and bite. But this liqueur is far from fiery and with the spice comes a pleasing flavours of black tea leaves, vanilla and sweet yellow bell pepper.


Long finishing with lingering chili heat.

Συνολική αίσθηση:

This liqueur delivers well-judged assertive but not fiery chili heat with attractive vegetal black tea leaves-like flavour.
