Tasting Notes from the Curator
On the nose, very nice peppermint aromas. The whole is very pleasant thanks to the fresh and spicy breath that emanates from it. Fresh and balanced mouth. The flavor of peppermint invades the palate leaving an extreme sensation of freshness.
This liqueur can be enjoyed pure on ice, line with sparkling water or can be added to refreshing cocktails such as Russian Delight (with Pink Grapefruit and Vodka), The White Lady (with Triple Sec and Fresh Lemon Juice), Mojito (with Lemon Juice & Fresh Mint leaves), Stinger (with Cognac) and many more.
From Pharmacy to Bar
Made in the Loire Valley in 1885, Giffard Menthe-Pastille is the leading Mint Pastille in France. First made in the hot summer of 1885 by Emile Giffard, a dispensing chemist in Angers, France. Whilst working late one night a patron from the hotel next door arrived on his doorstep complaining of indigestion. The mixture concocted cured her indigestion and left Emille with an idea. He set about formulating a clear peppermint liqueur using imported peppermint leaves from England, which he called ‘Menthe Pastille’. He began to market his new liqueur, which proved an instant success, leading him to establish his own distillery. Menthe Pastille is still made to the original recipe at a distillery run by Bruno Giffard, Emile’s great grandson.
This Menthe-Pastille has won a number of awards, namely, Master Medal at Liqueur Masters 2014 and Gold Medal at Liqueur Masters 2016 by the Spirits Business Magazine.
