Farigoule of Forcalquier, thyme liqueur
50 cl - 40°
This liqueur, characteristic of Haute Provence, is produced with wild thyme, a rustic and rebellious plant, harvested at the beginning of springtime, a time when our whole region is scented by this "simple"perfume. This characteristic digestif is testament to time-old tradition and regional soils, thanks ti its delightful garrigue perfume!
copy of Gin XII, with 12 plants and spices
70 cl - 42°
Gin XII is craft distilled from twelve plants and spices in a plate column still, creating a subtle range of aromas. Gin XII owes its name to the twelve plants and spices that go into its creation. It is characterised by fresh, minty, floral, slightly spicy notes and a beautifully lingering finish. A dry gin with a rich, authentic taste, born of a long period of research and reflection. Gin XII takes full advantage of its Haute-Provence terroir and its subtle blend of herbs such as thyme, rosemary, basil, eucalyptus, sweet almond and mint, which join forces with small juniper berries to express the aromatic intensity of a stroll through the garrigue!
