Since 1885, four generations of the Giffard family have worked hard to continuously provide the world with quality liqueurs and syrups. It all began during the very hot summer of 1885. Èmile Giffard was a pharmacist with an inventive, curious nature and the palate of a gourmand. In the scorching summer of 1885, in the town of Angers, he was studying the digestive and cooling properties of mint. Giffard’s research resulted in the invention of a clear mint liqueur, steam-distilled from the Mitcham variety of peppermint. As delicious as it was refreshing, this liqueur was immediately received with enthusiasm from the townspeople of Angers. Monsieur Giffard’s elixir was called Menthe Pastille after the mint candies that were so famous at the time.
