This elixir enjoyed a huge popularity for almost three hundred years but disappeared during the French Revolution when the abbey was destroyed. v=1650102871","options":["Size"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":6698981687347,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.

The story begins in 1510 with a Bénédictine monk named Dom Bernardo Vincelli at the Abbey de Fécamp in Normandy, France. The resulting liquid is encased in a bottle that features the coat of arms of the Benedictine Abbey and the motto DOM: Deo Optimo Maximo, or God infinitely good, infinitely great. Bénédictine is good served long with soda or tonic and is closely associated with classic cocktails such as the Singapore Sling, Vieux Carré and La Louisiane. This lovely gin-base aperitif is the perfect complement to the hot weather, featuring a refreshing concoction of lemon, cucumber, mint, strawberries, and lemonade. v=1684269626","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":33820845474105,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.Commonly assumed botanicals include hyssop, lemon balm, myrhh, juniper, aloe, arnica, and cinnamon, though these remain impossible to verify. It's useful in the most complex of mixes as well as the simplest, though they're almost always very elegant and refined. While the exact 27 ingredients in Benedictine are a closely held secret, they lend the liqueur plenty of herbal complexity. Best enjoyed at room temperature in a traditional liqueur glass, or alternatively with an ice cube and lemon zest. 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.

A great second consequence is that the bottle would last longer — but hey I just drink it more often! Warming notes of mocha coffee, fudge, vanilla and pine sap emerge and last through the zesty, saffron and gingerbread finish. The recipe of Bénédictine is a commercial secret, but it is known to contain 27 herbs and spices, of which the following 21 are publicly known: [ citation needed] angelica, hyssop, juniper, myrrh, saffron, mace, fir cones, aloe, arnica, lemon balm, tea, thyme, coriander, clove, lemon, vanilla, orange peel, honey, red berries, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Bénédictine is a favorite distilled spirit worldwide and adds a refined spiced sweetness to some of the best cocktails ever created. I grew up in Singapore, and for many of my Chinese friends there, it is also very traditional to have DOM after having a baby.Cookies collect information about your preferences and your devices and are used to make the site work as you expect it to, to understand how you interact with the site, and to show advertisements that are targeted to your interests. v=1596112826","width":600}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"The rarest whisky from Johnnie Walker-a special bottle for the special occasions. It's a simple mix of brandy and Bénédictine and became so popular that the brand created a pre-mixed version with French brandy. I really enjoyed reading all of that, as well as your description of the drink and your suggestions. Incidentally, the world’s largest consumer of Bénédictine is a gentlemen’s club in Burnley, right here in the UK!

which in Latin, stands for Deo Optimo Maximo (God infinitely good, infinitely great) and is also a reference to the Latin word Dominus (Master), given to Benedictine friars. It's inspired by the iconic Black Label and is a fail safe choice for any occasion, perfect for sharing. v=1596112826","options":["Size"],"media":[{"alt":"Johnnie Walker BLUE Label 70cl","id":6698738909235,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.The recipe disappeared during the French Revolution, but in 1863, wine trader Alexandre Le Grand was said to have found it in his library and set out to recreate Vincelli’s elixir—with a few tweaks. There is a certain sense of surrealism as you are shown the old copper stills the drink is distilled in and as you continue on your tour, there is a definite sense of walking on hallowed grounds.
