St. Germain took the cocktail world by storm when it debuted as the first available elderflower liqueur in 2007. To make the liqueur, elderflower petals are macerated in grape eau-de-vie, with the resulting combination then sweetened. St. Germain was created by the late Robert Cooper, and is now a part of the Bacardi portfolio.

Tasting Notes

"Aggressively elderflower and floral on the nose, with grapefruit, grape spirit, and in the background, a surprising touch of coffee grounds. The palate showcases grape jelly, rose water, lychee, apricots, honey, and key lime pie. A short finish breezes past with dreams of fragrant dewy mornings."
