A slightly sweet liqueur that is named after the Benedictine monks from the Abbey of Fecamp. This liqueur was first produced by them back in the 16th century, but during the devistation of the French Revolution, the recipe was acquired by the Le Grand family and turned into a comercial venture. To this day, the recipe is a closely guarded secret. All that is known about the recipe, is that it is based on Cognac, and is flavored with various aromatics, fruit peels, and herbs.
Bottles of Benedictine include the initials D.O.M. which stands for "Deo Optimo Maximo" (For our best, greatest God).
