St. Germain is a sweet liqueur crafted in the artisanal French style from elderberry flowers. The unusual flavor has been reckoned as containing elements of peach, orange, grapefruit, and pear. The liqueur is commonly mixed with sparkling white wine. The liqueur has a heady lychee aroma, with grapefruit and other citrus undertones. St. Germain is made in Paris, by a company dating back to 1884. The liqueur was awarded a Double Gold Medal at the 2007 San Francisco Spirits Competition.
