Liqueurs Saint Germain and Domain de Canton?
- Lgalen Sep 2, 2012 07:15 AM
These liquors are quite pricey in the US, and I'm thinking that they may be a good thing to bring back duty free at the end of our trip to France. Here, they each cost approx. $38 for a 750 ml bottle. Has anyone seen them at the duty free shops at the airport, or in shops in Paris? How are the prices in FRance for these treats?
May I suggest you bring back Amer Picon, which you can't get in the US. And maybe some Chartreuse Elixir Vegetal, rather than shave a few bucks off something you can easily get in the US? Some some Dupont Calvados expressions that aren't exported?

I actually just purchased about $300 worth of liquor from the duty-free at Charles De Gaulle airport and St Germain, I noticed, was not much cheaper. Same with Champagne. Chartreuse, on the other hand, was significantly cheaper and I purchased several bottles. It's about $70/bottle here and it was only 33 euro at duty-free. The prices do change, and vary from airport to airport, so just take a look when you leave France.
Are those products even available in Europe? I know they're made in France, but by an American company and, I thought, for the American market. That said their might be other Elderflower and ginger liqueurs available that don't ever get exported,
