Among the native wildflowers found in the Alps are the Queen Charlotte and March Violets. Rothman & Winter Crème de Violette captures their fragrance and taste on a robust brandy base. This is a true expression, without any added vanilla or fruit, working as the magical bridging ingredient in so many classic cocktails. Enjoy this liqueur in classics such as the Aviation or Blue Moon, or with dry or sweet sparkling wines. Since 1932 the Purkhart family has produced award winning eaux-de-vie (brandy or “brand”), schnaps and liqueurs. Renowned for his exacting standards and consistent quality, Günter Purkhart has taught distillation technique to many of today’s leading producers. Capturing elegance of ripe fruit and authentic regional tastes is a family passion.

Makes a great Aviation cocktail
Beautiful color, sweet floral nose and unpretentious floral taste. Think of it as a pretty young woman cuddling baby goats in the springtime

It's hard to find, but it's so worth it. Light and sweet, the perfect way to elevate a G&T.

Smelled nice, but failed to give the floral profile I find in my local craft cocktail bar's Aviation (which to be fair is exceptional.) I think I'll probably just pop for the extra few bucks and get The Bitter Truth Violet next time and will save this for lemonade or tea, where I don't need as strong a violet profile.
