Giffard Pamplemousse Liqueur

Cocktail Essential


The aroma of grapefruit and the sweet-tart taste of the sunkissed fruit adds a delicious zest to any cocktail.

750ml & 32 Proof

Tasting Notes

The intense aroma of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, slightly zesty and floral with notes of black pepper, lemon, and bitter orange.  Balanced between bitterness, acidity and fruity, with a zesty note at the end.

Ways to Enjoy
Classic: Grapefruit Mezcalarita – 2 parts mezcal plus one part Giffard Pamplemousse and one part lime juice. Shake with ice, strain and garnish with a lime slice.

Unexpected: The Brown Derby Redux. High proof bourbon plus fresh grapefruit juice, Giffard Pamplemousse, honey syrup and a dash of orange bitters: one delicious drink.


Silver, San Francisco World Spirits Competition, 2014
Production Notes

Fresh pink grapefruit peels are steam-distilled to extract their intense aromatic oils, resulting in a peach blush liquid.  The liquid has a creamy viscosity, and is lower in alcohol and richer in sugar than other categories of liqueur.

Founder Facts

It all began in 1885. Emile Giffard was a pharmacist with an inventive, curious nature and the palate of a gourmand. One scorching summer in Angers, France, in a small Loire Valley town, he was studying the digestive and cooling properties of mint. Giffard’s research resulted in the invention of a clear mint liqueur, steam-distilled from the Mitcham variety of peppermint. Emile called his elixir Menthe Pastille after the mint candies that were famous at the time. As delicious as it was refreshing, the liqueur was immediately received with enthusiasm from the townspeople of Angers.

Building on the success of Menthe Pastille, Giffard began creating other liqueurs and syrups from the rich bounty of local fruits and botanicals as well as the exotic spices and herbs that were brought in by ship on the Loire River from ports around the world.

Five generations later, Giffard is still owned and operated by the same family who maintain the tradition and quality of all of its products.
