G. Miclo is a distillery based in Alsace in eastern France at the foot of the Vosges mountains. The founder was the son of a wine merchant who in the 1950's and 1960's used to deliver schnapps - from farmers to restaurants (as well as the wines) but it was the schnapps that he wasn't always happy with - because the quality was inconsistant. The region was and still is teaming with fruit trees - this gave Gilbert the idea to begin his own production and so G. Miclo was born.
This rose liqueur is expertly made by macerating rose petals in a fine spirit base before the addition of sugar. The resulting flavour is richly perfumed. This can be consumed on its own over ice or in a variety of cocktails.
