Italian Liqueur, Genepy Herbetet Originale, Alpe
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.
