St. Germain Elderflower liqueur

St. Germain is a sweet liqueur crafted in the artisanal French style from elderberry flowers.[1] The unusual flavor has been reckoned as containing elements of peach, orange, grapefruit, and pear. The liqueur has a heady lychee aroma, with grapefruit and other citrus undertones. [2] The liqueur is commonly mixed with sparkling white wine.[3]

St. Germain is made in Paris, by a company dating back to 1884. The liqueur was awarded a Double Gold Medal at the 2007 San Francisco Spirits Competition.[4]
