Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur

By Adam Friday 16th May, 2014

A true Dapper Chapper knows that their home bar is more than a place to store booze. Your bar should be a reflection of yourself, with the world to see. With this is mind we’ve been on the hunt for the right bottles to sit on a Dapper Chappers bar. To make the cut, it’s simple; they have to look right and taste right.

We’ve found a cracker in Domaine de Canton. Encased in a beautifully designed bottle, it’s is the world’s first ultra premium ginger liqueur and is handmade in small batches in Jarnac in the heart of Cognac, France.

Domaine de Canton is produced by the third generation liqueur-maker, John Cooper, and Master Distiller Jean Francois Bardou. Producing fine French liqueurs has been a Cooper family tradition since 1884.

Each batch is made using fresh, baby ginger from Vietnam, orange blossom honey from Provence and a fresh Tahitian vanilla-bean infusion which is then blended with
VSOP and Grande Champagne XO cognac. It is an all natural liqueur without preservatives or stablisers and is packaged in a distinctive frosted, bamboo-shaped

You can take it neat but we enjoyed a few cocktail recipes and Strawberry Ginger Martini was our favourite & here’s recipe:

  • 1 PART GIN

– Muddle 3 large strawberries. Squeeze the juice of a lime wedges. Serve in a chilled Martini glass.

RRP is around £ 33 for 70cl AbV: 28% & is found in stockists familiar to a Dapper Chapper including Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and other fine off licences.
