Alpe’s Genepy “Herbetet” is named after Herbetet Peak of the mountain Grand Paradiso, located in the Graian Alps between the Aosta Valley and Piedmont.
At these high elevations, the famous/infamous/fantastical/questionably hallucinogenic herb, Genepy aka Génépi aka Artemisia aka wormwood grows in abundance, providing Alpe’s herbal liqueur with its categorical name, classic flavor and color. Note: Genepy is also often used when speaking generally about a liqueur produced from a variety of alpine herbs, including, but not always, wormwood.
In addition to wormwood, Alpe’s Genepy also infuses oregano, mint and cinnamon, among other ingredients, into the grain-based alcohol. This herbal dram is balanced by 200g sugar/L and clocks in at 49% abv.
At this atypically higher proof, Alpe’s Genepy Herbetet is perfect when served as a digestif and works EFFORTLESSLY in cocktails.
