Violet Liqueur (500 ml, 25% vol.)

Nowadays, one appreciates good stories. How does a more than 100-year-old distillery manage to light up the nights the world over? This is a mystery that Combier guards less jealously than that of its recipes! Created solely through mashing or distillation of fruits, plants or highest-quality extracts, the liqueurs and cocktail bases of Combier leave a rich sensation of fruit on the palate that is marvelously suited for the creation of cocktails.

The violet flower is a speciality of Toulouse, and the Toulouse area can be considered the spiritual home of Violet Liqueur. It was a very popular cocktail ingredient in the 1920's and '30s, appearing in famous cocktails such as Angel's Wings, Blue Moon or Aviation. A version created in America, Creme Yvette, (chich also contained vanilla and other aromas) is no longer produced, and even in France Liqueur de Violette can be difficult to find. In recent years, however, violet liqueur has been rediscovered by drink afficionados around the world, and the Combier liqueur is an excellent opportunity to discover the taste of the roaring twenties and thirties.
