Suze Saveur d’Autrefois is a product made for gentian lovers. Suze Saveur d’Autrefois is a bitter aperitif made from fresh gentian roots harvested 100% in France after a long growing cycle, during 10 to 20 years. With 20% alcohol, it distinguishes itself with a very strong note of gentian, bringing back memories of the recipe of long ago.
Intensive notes of gentian, bitter and citrus zest. The recipe inspired by the original recipe from Suze giving its distinctive flavor and a unique personality.
In 1885, the vast majority of aperitifs available were wine-based. A distillery owner, Fernand Moureaux, invented an aperitif drink made by distilling gentian roots. A true celebrity among French aperitifs, Suze owes its renown to two key advantages: an aroma of wild gentian distilling a delicately bitter taste and a slender bottle, designed at the end of the 19th century by Henri Porte. For generations, Suze has been recognized for its traditional production.
