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.
The distinctive amber-coloured bottle was introduced in 1896, when Henri Porte joined forces with Moureaux. In Autumn 1912, a bottle of Suze was the inspiration for Pablo Picasso's Cubist 'Verre et bouteille de Suze'.

Avaliação e degustação

Experimentado em 15/04/2012


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


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


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


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