Launched in 2010, this limited 500th anniversary edition of Bénédictine D.O.M. is presented in a black bottle with black wax seal and a white top (it is red-topped in Asian markets as black and white are considered funereal colours.)
Although the packaging is obviously different to the classic Bénédictine D.O.M., the liqueur is unchanged.
