Noyau de Poissy Sceau de Saint-Louis Liqueur (700 ml)
Noyau de Poissy appears to have been much appreciated since the 17th century, especially during the town’s famous cattle markets.
The Seine Valley has long been renowned for its sunny slopes planted with numerous apricot, sloe and cherry orchards. The kernels of these fruits all have highly aromatic qualities. The idea of macerating them in locally-produced fruit and wine brandies must have evolved fairly early on. These first liqueurs, known as ratafia, were extremely popular for a long time. This can be seen with Noyau de Poissy, as its early origins make it the oldest secular liqueur in France.
In 1826, the owner of the distillery at the time, Alexandre Delporte, was awarded a Gobelet d’Argent (Silver Goblet) by the Duchesse de Berry, King Charles X’s daughter in law, in recognition of the quality of his production.
