Inspired by flavor from the very beginning!
In the early 1900s, Frenchman and small-town manufacturer Georges Monin was hosting his family for dinner when his brother-in-law asked for an after-dinner drink. As a self - proclaimed flavor enthusiast and avid cook, Georges loved to entertain. He reveled in family gatherings where he could experiment with flavor combinations and prepare savory meals all while spending time with those closest to him. As he was pouring the cordial into glasses, he noticed that the aroma escaping from the bottle was muted and the color was dull. He sipped the liquid to give it a quick taste and immediately decided that after serving a meal filled with such delectable flavors and captivating aromas, the cordial was an unfitting way to close the evening. He scoured his bar, only to realize that each and every cordial had the same effect as the first.
The next morning, he began his search for the best cordial on the market. He tested everything he could find in every city of France, and was disappointed to admit that nothing was good enough to offer his brother-in-law at the next family dinner. Instead of admitting defeat, Georges began experimenting with his own flavors in his kitchen at home. After years and years of trial and error, Georges had finally created a cordial that met (and exceeded) his expectations.
