Floral Inspired

My obsession of flowers has transcended from my vases to my cocktails. Thanks to St- Germain I can indulge in the foothills of France right from home with the fresh and natural flavor of elderflowers available in a finely crafted, perfectly balanced refined liqueur.

St-Germain delivers flavor in a wonderfully affable way.  The silky smooth elderflower is sweet without being too sweet, and notes aren’t soapy or overdone. It is a flavor as subtle and delicate as it is captivating.  Whilst perfectly tasty consumed neat, St-Germain is definitely a liqueur whose true beauty is released when mixed in cocktail especially with champagne, pear, peach or grapefruit. I highly recommend this beloved liqueur!
