St-Germain & Domaine de Canton

Original post by Rodolphe Boulanger, Mar 17, 2009.

A big thanks to gr for sharing shared this fascinating article with me.
I thought the spirits lovers would appreciate it.

St-Germain elderflower liqueur and Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur are the 2 of the most fascinating new items to hit the bar in years. I encourage everyone out there (over 21, of course) to give them a try. As 2007 and 2008 winners, respectively, of the best liqueur prize at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition, it's even more amazing that this products were created by 2 brothers... working independently.

Moreover, how can you not love these beautiful bottles:

@RBoulanger: It occurs to me that I can probably try some in Philly at Rum Bar (http://www.rum-bar.com/ ), which I may well do before I'm at a point to buy another bottle of rum (what with a bottle of Goslings Black Seal, 1.5 bottles of 10 Cane white, some añejo I've forgotten the name of, two different cachaças, and probably some pisco soon for the summer months, I'm not exactly hurting for sugar cane-based bases at the moment), and I seem to recall the 360 Bar is sufficiently stocked in that department as well.

Yes - 360 Bar even got a new one yesterday.
Also - FdC can be samples (for almost the cost of a bottle, however) at The Brandy Library.

@gr, yeah that's the one I mean, just not a good speller. You know that the cachaças will have an appellation soon? Just did a master class with the brand ambassador for Sagatiba, not only that but also found out by some twist of fate the father of the master distiller had brought some limo oak barrels and dug them into the ground poured in 10,000 litres and kept a dairy up until his death regarding the hidden barrels no-one really knew for sure if these barrels actually existed, anyway the son went on a mission to scour the properties and surrounding area's to find it (mind you the father died in 83 I think) he finally found the mystic barrels and out of the 10,000 there was only 3,000 left and hence the only aged cachaças that is known atm I think and it's 23yo should be getting one this week- never to be opened only to be sold as a retirement fund later.

Great story about cachaça!
It's certainly a spirit that I need to learn a bit more about... but maybe not via the route of an abundance of Caipirinhas!
