This is a complex liqueur with a whole cacophony of flavours, including honey, citrus and the herbal twang of rosemary, sage and basil.

It is an essential ingredient in the Singapore Sling, and is also great for pre-dinner drinks with a few cubes of ice and a lemon twist.

The story of Bénédictine began in Normandy in 1510, when the Benedictine monk, Don Bernado Vincelli, created an elixir of 27 plants and spices.


For almost three centuries, the Benedictines produced the famous elixir, but this all came to an end with the French Revolution in 1789.

Three hundred and fifty years after its invention, Alexandre Le Grand, a wine merchant and collector of religious art and recipes, discovered the forgotten formula in his collection. After a year of failed attempts, he managed to recreate the mysterious elixir that he called Bénédictine.

Alexandre Le Grand had an ornate palace built to house Bénédictine’s production along with his home. After it burned down a few years later, he built an even more spectacular palace, where the liqueur continues to be distilled today.

Plants and spices from all over the globe go through a lengthy series of infusions, heating, mixing, ageing periods in oak barrels, and distillations in unique hammered copper stills that date from Alexandre Le Grand’s time, all to achieve a “subtle alchemy”. Honey and saffron are also added to the potion, for both flavour and colour. The resulting elixir is then filtered, bottled and delivered 31 DOVER HQ.
