Double Gold Medal at the 2007 and 2008 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. St. Germain is an artisanal French liqueur made from hand-picked elderflower blossoms.
The starry white flowers are gathered by 40-50 men pedaling the Alpen French countryside picking the flowers that will be distilled into this intoxicating nectar.
Blended with a small amount of citrus and natural cane sugar to accentuate the subtle flavor of the elderflowers, the resulting liqueur is delicate and balanced with fresh floral aromas and flavors and hints of pear, apricot and grapefruit zest.
Try St-Germain's signature cocktail-2 shots of Champagne, 1 1/4 shots of St-Germain and 2 shots of sparkling water-and then get creative, pairing it with gin, vodka or white wine.

Ripe cantaloupe, papaya, mango and orange blossom draw you in to this exotic bouquet. Fresh elderflower takes over and gives way to a velvety mouthfeel and an energetic citrus and tropical profile. A soft sweetness takes you into an ambrosial finish.
