Genepy is famous as the primary alpine herb used to create the legendary Chartreuse. Traditionally bottled on its own by a few select producers, Chez Dolin offers this classic example dating back from their 1821 recipe. Pale green and yellow in color, the nose is dominated by the concentrated, pungent, herbaceous nature of the herb, with a sweet mouth coating on the palate that transitions to a long, warming minty, candy cane, and lavender finish.
Strega (or Liquore Strega), is an Italian herbal liqueur produced since 1860 by the S. A. Distilleria Liquore Strega in Benevento, Campania, Italy. Its yellow color comes from the presence of saffron in its recipe. Liquore Strega is 80 proof (40%) and among its approximately 70 herbal ingredients are mint and fennel. Strega is considered a digestif, meant for drinking after meals. Strega is the Italian word for "witch". I love this so much - very tasty!
It’s doesn’t get much more Bohemian than Becherovka, an herbal Czech liqueur that sometimes moonlights as a digestif. Made with a secret mixture of herbs and spices, Becherovka has a flavor that suggests cinnamon and ginger. It’s wintertime goodness in a bottle.
This aperitif wine is made by infusing quinine, gentian, and other herbs from the Grande Chartreuse Mountains into Mistelle wine. The result shows us wonderful RC cola notes with high citrus tones. This is just slightly bitter and should be served either neat or with an orange twist on the rocks.
