About this deal

This Beautiful Liqueur is best drunk in small sips, letting the nectar slowly flow throughout your mouth to the back of the throat. Liqueur, is the perfect accompaniment to champagne in the DOM Cocktail, and can also be sipped neat or enjoyed as an after-dinner liqueur. This blend is double-heated to finish the flavor before going into oak barrels to age for four months.

The rise of the single grain is eagerly anticipated as the next wave in the spirits industry-and Haig Club Deluxe is at the forefront of the movement. The origin of these plants is like a journey around the world: from Greece to Africa, to Indonesia, India and so much more. In The Benediction, for instance, half a shot of Bénédictine and a dash of orange bitters are topped with Champagne in a flute then garnished with a lemon twist. In the pantheon of herbal liqueurs, particularly European herbal liqueurs, Benedictine is right around the top for me,” says Morgenthaler. Benedictine is a sweet and aromatic liqueur that is perfect for sipping on its own or using in cocktails.

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.

So many people have tried to reproduce it that the company maintains on its grounds in Fécamp a "Hall of Counterfeits" ( Salle des Contrefaçons). Originally created and produced in Normandy, France as an elixir for monks to help maintain their work, Benedictine DOM is also the world’s first branded liqueur medicine. Deliveries to Jersey, Channel Islands, The Isle of Man, The Isle of Wight, The Scilly Isles and some areas of Scotland may take longer and are subject to a surcharge. Our reviewers discerned notes of honey, cardamom, nutmeg, vanilla, citrusy black peppercorns, and white flowers. 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.

Bénédictine weighs in at 40% abv (alcohol by volume), making it a very potent spirit, perhaps there is some truth in the stories that the old abbot’s ghost is seen from time to time at the distillery? The storied French liqueur lends its honeyed, herbal notes to classic cocktails like the Vieux Carré, Benedictine and Brandy, and Singapore Sling.
