About this deal

According to Reiner, those who enjoy high-quality ports, sherries, or vermouths over ice are likely to enjoy Benedictine. In 1510, the Benedictine monk Dom Bernardo Vincelli developed the liqueur as a health elixir at the Abbey of Fécamp in Normandy, France. This liqueur is based on a secret recipe by French Benedictine monks said to date back to 1510 and is based on local medicinal plants enhanced by oriental spices.

Benedictine is a sweet and aromatic liqueur that is perfect for sipping on its own or using in cocktails. In 1863 Alexandre Le Grand developed a recipe for an herbal liqueur, helped by a local chemist, from old medicinal recipes that he had acquired from a religious foundation where a maternal grandparent had held office as a fiscal prosecutor. Just remember, a little goes a long way; it’s robust and it’s sweet, a touch is all you need for it to enhance and not dictate the flavours. unless we get written confirmation from you that this is acceptable and that you will take full responsibilty if the parcel goes missing.

Incidentally, the world’s largest consumer of Bénédictine is a gentlemen’s club in Burnley, right here in the UK! Well, let’s start with the fact that Bénédictine is made up of a secret blend of 27 herbs and spices that includes saffron, cinnamon, angelica, hyssop, juniper and myrrh from five continents! The incredible story of Bénédictine began in 1510 in the Abbey of Fécamp in Normandy France when the Benedictine monk Dom Bernardo Vincelli created a secret elixir that was to become famous for years to come. It was developed by wine merchant Alexandre Le Grand in the 19th century, and is flavored with twenty-seven flowers, berries, herbs, roots, and spices.

One day, as he was going through old documents in his family’s treasure of a library, he came across an aged manuscript for the study of hermeticism and alchemy. v=1660748950","width":640}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"The world-famous Chivas Regal Scotch blend has been a luxurious choice since the 1900's.

Distilled and aged in a flamboyant palace, built in Fécamp in tribute to this unique liqueur, Bénédictine is a subtle alchemy of 27 different plants and spices.
