St-Germain is a unique French liqueur created using fresh, wild elderflowers that are hand-picked at their peak of flavour and aroma. As St-Germain uses only fresh elderflowers the harvest is rare and valuable as they are only in blossom for a few fleeting weeks each Spring. The fresh flowers are then macerated in hot water (softening or breaking into pieces using a liquid), the recipe is a closely guarded secret, however. The result if a 100% natural elderflower extraction that gives the liqueur its unique, fresh flavour, lovingly referred to as Parisian Life In a Bottle.
