500 Years in the Making

Benedictine® Liqueur

Dedicated

 


BÉNÉDICTINE Liqueur was created in an era shrouded by mystery and uncertainty. The Hundred Years' War had ended, while the Renaissance had just begun. France was at a turning point and there was little to celebrate with! To help alleviate that problem, the monks at the Benedictine Order at Fécamp Abbey set to work creating a famed elixir that became known as BÉNÉDICTINE.

The recipe for BÉNÉDICTINE, perfected in 1510 by Dom Bernardo Vincelli, was thought to have been lost during the French Revolution, as the Order at Fécamp Abbey fled France. Fortunately for all, it was rediscovered in 1863 by Alexandre Le Grand. His recreation of this superb liqueur lives on to this day. And what a glorious day it is. To  be celebrating the 500th anniversary of anything is impressive, but when  it's BÉNÉDICTINE Liqueur with its secret blend of 27 herbs and spices,  you know you are celebrating with one of the most storied liqueurs in history.

Enjoy BÉNÉDICTINE Liqueur with its powerful yet pleasing bouquet of sweet yet spicy aromas, mellow yet mouth-filling flavors, and deep lingering finish full of honey and spice notes. It remains a tribute to the day it was created: a day of hope, promise, and rebirth. We can all drink to that!

Enjoy BÉNÉDICTINE® Responsibly
