- Giffards Crème de Pamplemousse is a grapefruit liqueur crafted by extracting the essential oils found in grapefruit peels through steam distillation. True to the fruit, the result is the bright aromatic quality and the balanced bitterness and tartness of fresh pink grapefruit.
Emile Giffard was a pharmacist in Angers in France's Loire Valley who started creating liqueurs to help keep his clientele cool and refreshed in the summertime. Giffard Pamplemousse has a pale warm rosé color with a nose of fresh-cut grapefruit with a hint of sweetness. The palate has juicy citrus flavors with the natural bitterness of grapefruit. Enjoy on the rocks, mixed with soda water, or in a variety of refreshing cocktails. (from the distiller)
