A blend of the classic Bénédictine herbal, spiced liqueur, and brandy. The D.O.M. on the label stands for Deo Optimo Maximo, which is Latin for To God Most Good, Most Great - that's how good they think this stuff is! The original Benedictine recipe is centuries old, and was created by Don Bernado Vincelli as an elixir for the monks as they worked, and as a malarial defence. In fact, Benedictine was the first branded medicinal liqueur. It's worth noting that this isn't actually a malarial defence, but still makes a tasty cocktail!
First tasted in in New York in 1973 whilst on a Ship handling Course @ La Guardia Air Training centre. introduced by an American Ships Captain on the same course. Really enjoyed and have done so ever since.
