Made with an ancient recipe, kept strictly secret. Many different kinds of herbs are manufactured and mixed together. It is the mix of all these herbs' properties that assures the stimulating effect of this bitter. It is not a slightly bitter liqueur, but a proper bitter with a full and dry taste, genuine and without any added sugar. The ancient monastery recipe rightly called it " The long life elixir".
Even the ancient Romans appreciated the qualities of juniper. With the frequent use of juniper berries in the kitchens of various regions in the Alps, enjoying this juniper distillate is now a much loved tradition.
