Named to the Spirit Journal's '140 Best Five Star Spirits in the World for 2012 (#38)': "Maybe the best new liqueur released in the last two decades, St.-Germain is a revelation due to its delicacy and its unique flavor. A gifted mixed drink ingredient, St.-Germain is fresh, succulent, and delicious due primarily to its understatement and class. (Jun 2012)"
'Top 50 Spirits of 2008' and Classic (96-100)/Highest Recommendation, Wine Enthusiast: "The seductive bouquet offers wonderfully floral and fruity fragrances of elderflower, becoming richly pear- and quince-like following aeration time. The palate entry is soft and firm; the midpalate is integrated, harmonious and exquisitely balanced between alcohol level, sweetness, acidity and floral impact. A perfect liqueur. Best Buy."
