St Germain liqueur is a liqueur made from elderflowers, the small and white blossoms of the elderberry plant.
It has a sweet and floral taste and is made of fresh, hand-picked elderflowers.
The taste of elderflower is hard to describe. It’s sweet and floral with hints of fruity notes.
In Europe, these flowers are often used to make syrups, liqueur, and juice.
And it was a cocktail made from elderflower syrup that gave Cooper the idea of making a liqueur with a similar flavor.
St Germain has a rich mouthfeel with pronounced sweetness and subtle flavors.
You get distinct floral notes from elderflower and honeysuckle paired with hints of pear and passion fruit flavors.
The aroma of the liqueur is very intense, with plenty of sweetness with rich notes from flowers and berries.
Its consistency is thick and oily, almost like syrup. By swirling, you can see how slow and smooth it moves around the glass.
