We visited here while our Vantage river cruise ship was docked in Le Havre, France. This is a stunning palace located in Fecamp, France and houses the distillery of the famous Benedictine liqueur. The liqueur is made from an infusion of 27 herbs and spices (only 21 are apparently publicly known). We took a tour of the distillery with its hammered copper stills, visited the cellars full of oak casks, and had a chance to taste the liqueur. We could choose from three types of the Benedictine liqueur: Original Benedictine, B&B (Benedictine and Brandy), or Benedictine Single Cask. The original and B&B are 40% alcohol (80 proof) and the Single Cask, which comes in a unique black bottle is only available for sale at the Benedictine’s Palace store. We were only given a very small amount to taste of this bold liqueur due to its alcohol content. The tasting room actually had a breathalyzer machine hanging on the wall.
