Liqueur de Violettes is created by Tempus Fugit Spirits from a century year old recipe. It is made from flower petals hand picked in the Côte d'Azur. Its pink-ish color comes naturally from those violets. The liqueur has a mysteriously alluring floral flavor, almost like you're sipping some sort of forbidden nectar. Distinctly floral and sweet, reminiscent of the violet candies popular in the early to mid 20th century. In the early 19th century liqueur de violettes was served with dry vermouth or alone as a cordial.
