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!
