In 1885, the pharmacist Emile Giffard invented the Menthe pastille…
Through research into the invigorating, refreshing and digestive effects of mint, he came up with the idea of making a fine, white liqueur from it. He followed the zeitgeist and successfully met the taste of his customers.
He converted his pharmacy into a distillery and named the liqueur Menthe-Pastille, a reference to the mints of the time.
The company has remained a family business ever since, based near Angers in north-west France and specializing in the production of liqueurs.
Giffard produces Menthe pastilles, «Crèmes de Fruits», liqueurs, Guignolet and syrups.
Our profession since 1885: liqueur manufacturer
First things first: the quality of the fruit and plants used
We prefer to buy local fruit (100% of the black currant comes from Les Pays de la Loire, for example). But exotic fruits that thrive in distant countries are also imported.
Maceration is a traditional production method that largely preserves the natural flavor of the fruit
To extract the flavors, the fruit is steeped in alcohol for 48 hours to 3 months, depending on the type. The achieved “infusion” is the basis of the liqueur production.
But we also have company secrets: our recipes and the tradition of production
Dosing, composition, mixing, filtration, control of each production step – all this ensures the high quality of GIFFARD products.
Each product is tasted and checked before bottling.
Development and research: our own laboratory, which works all year round
Renew, improve, test with expert foresight… and all this with seriousness and passion.
The demand for a high level of naturalness in our liqueurs and syrups necessitates constant improvements in production processes.
Liqueur is an essential part of cocktails. He gives them the desired aromatic note. And he should keep his promise.
Pale yellow colour, natural colouring obtained through the maceration of peels, the colour is very close to a fresh lemon juice.
On the nose, aroma of lemon juice and lemon zest.
Acidulous lemon flavor enhanced by a slight bitterness characteristic of the zest.
