Tasting Notes

The herb that gives its name to this liqueur plays a very special role in the life and imagination of the inhabitants of Provence. Farigoule is a traditional liqueur in Provence. Many families, and farmers in particular, make it from harvesting thyme and distilling marc. The name Farigoule comes from the Latin fericula meaning, "small wild herb." This infusion consists of Provençal thyme (Thymus vulgaris) spirit and sugar cane in a grape-spirit base. The thyme is picked just when it blossoms in the spring or early in the autumn. It is macerated then distilled. The mixture of the flowering tops and dried leaves gives Farigoule a better aromatic balance. Small amounts of lemon verbena, angelica root, and sage are added to achieve the final delicious mixture.

    This silly little product sounds like a bad idea, but it's turns out to be a really really good one. Powerful and intense, the Farigoule is like taking trip to Provence without the jet-lag. The thyme is evident, but as you explore it more you can tease out a great deal of interesting garrigue aromas. Needs a bit of an experts touch for mixing, but well worth it.
