St~Germain is a French liqueur made with fresh elderflowers, hand-picked once a year in the late spring. As the world’s first, finely crafted all-natural elderflower liqueur, its flavor is as subtle and delicate as it is captivating, evidenced in its sublime notes of peach, pear, and grapefruit, yet none of them exactly. Perhaps contributing to its elusive reputation is that of French savoir faire—an inconspicuous ingredient that is all at once essential to St~Germain’s endless charm.
The exceptional quality and taste of St~Germain is defined by the ephemeral elderflowers used to create it. To accomplish its exquisitely fresh and natural flavor, every bottle of St~Germain contains up to 1,000 of the very best elderflower blossoms, resulting in a finely crafted, perfectly balanced and refined liqueur.
Creating St~Germain is somewhat of a race against time, as there are only a few fleeting weeks every summer when the blossoms’ flavor and aroma are at their peak. That is why each bottle is individually numbered to reflect the year in which the flowers were picked—a charming reminder that even the smallest and most delicate opportunities can be nurtured into something beautiful.
