G. Miclo or Hermes creme de violette in the States?
- Pei Jan 3, 2011 08:49 PM
I know Rothman is available in most big cities, but has anyone spotted Hermes or G. Miclo in any big cities, especially LA, SF, NY or DC? Before committing to a bottle of Rothman I'd like to see if I can get my hands on something better.
Two friends lucky enough to be in Tokyo for New Year's tried to find Hermes creme de violette for me, but to no avail. Hopefully they haven't stopped production?
G Miclo is good stuff, had some in London (really like their pear), and Fockink is pretty amazing stuff as well, had some at their tasting house in Amsterdam
you can order Fockink through their website now
Pick up someof the cassis (blackberry liquor) as well, it is amazing
Anna - do you know of stores that carry it in AZ (pear or other)? Bonus points if you know of anyone carrying Orange Cinzano Vermouth in the US - Must recreate the Golden Negroni Drink I had at Rules :)
Dapuma, that Orange Cinzano sure sounds delicious! I'm afraid we're only distributing in the Chicagoland area for the Miclo products at this time but, alas, I would love to see it everywhere and have a vision to do so. I would love get in contact with people who have the buying power to do so. :-)
