Benedictine DOM 700ml

Benedictine is a magnificent blend of Cognac, botanicals and herb, formulated by Dom Bernardo Vincelli in the sixteenth century and refined by Alexandre Le Grand in the nineteenth. Brewed from a painstaking infusion of thirty bespoke components, angelica and hyssop, juniper and myrrh, saffron and aloe, arnica and cinnamon, the full list is a closely guarded secret. DOM Benedictine is one of the most enduring marques in all France, it has been the first choice amongst bon vivants and discerning luxury enthusiasts for generations.
The fabulous history of Benedictine began during the renaissance, when a Venetian monk at the Abbey of Fécamp, Dom Bernardo Vincelli, formulated an elixir of 27 plants and spices from the four corners of the globe, produced by the Benedictine monks up until the end of the 18th century. In the turmoil of the French Revolution, the recipe was almost lost forever. In 1791, a Fécamp luminary inadvertantly acquired the 16th century manuscript but in his ignorance of the invaluable secret within, he filed it in his library and forgot all about it. In 1863, Alexandre Le Grand, a distant relation of the Fécamp notable, came across the book of spells by chance and unearthed the secret recipe.
