Benedictine was founded way back in 1510 in the Abbey of Fecamp Normandy France by a Benedictine monk, Dom Bernaro Vincelli.
He went on to create a secret elixir that was to become a all time great liqueur which is still popular today. However 350 years later in 1863, Alexandre Le Grand a merchant & collector of religious art discovered the lost recipe for this elixir in his collection. Intrigued by the discovery and after many attempts, he successfully recreated the mysterious liqueur that he called Bénédictine.
Distilled and aged in a flamboyant palace, built in Fécamp in tribute to this unique liqueur, Bénédictine is a subtle alchemy of 27 different plants and spices.
