Genepi Liqueur D’Armoises

Génépi, gathered when flowering in july among ragged rocks, lends this mountain liqueur its character and finesse.
A symbol of the mountains, Génépi enjoys the same aura of mystery that surrounds all inaccessible things. It is a drink for connoisseurs and lovers of herbal liqueurs.

– This aromatic liqueur will revive and heat up tired limbs after a day’s skiing and is always well received for its digestive qualities at the end of a fondue evening with friends…

– Génépi is also an excellent partner for pork chops or a pork roast.

– You will enjoy it poured over a lemon sorbet as a palate-cleansing “trou provençal” between courses.

Our tip: As a digestif, chilled or on the rocks. Add a few drops [of Génépi] to a sugar cube and dip in coffee (the French call this a “canard”).
Liqueurs made their appearance at the time of the discovery of alcohol in the 18th century. Originally they were simply eau de vie mixed with sugar and called “eau divine” (divine water). However, quickly, certain producers found a way to produce an even better drink. In Haute Provence, for example, they flavored the liqueurs with mountain herbs: genipi, hyssop, mountain thyme… Drunk for pleasure or used as medicines, these different liqueurs were believed to have the most marvellous properties. Apothecaries had shown no interest whatsoever in genipi and the other mountain herbs until the 16th century. However the people who lived in the mountains, particularly the alp dwellers, had known these herbs for a long time and used them to prevent chills and for their tonic and digestive properties. Likewise, the monks used them to make aromatic elixirs and liqueurs which were greatly prized for their therapeutic qualities and taste. Important snippets of information: Genipis belong to the same family as the absynthes (Artemisia). Genipi does not grow under 2000m altitude… Enthusiasts take note!
