About Domaine de Canton:
Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur was inspired by the French tradition in which sweet and fresh elixirs were fortified by fine eaux de vie and cognac. Named for the ginger estate of Domaine de Canton, this aromatic elixir first became popular with the French during colonial Indochine. Inspired by the subtle spiciness of the baby ginger grown there, the French began adding its exotic flavor to eau de vie and Cognac. Its recipe evokes an era of tropical romance and continental sophistication that is both elegant and timeless. Domaine de Canton is handmade in small batches in the Cognac region of Jarnac, France and contains no preservatives or colorants. It can be found at most liquor stores as well as at some of the hottest restaurants and bars in the world.
