The Liqueur d’Abricot is made from a single variety of apricot from Bergerac (as opposed to several for the eau de vie) and done with macerated fruit only. It offers a huge explosion of sweet red and orange fruits, rose petal, cinnamon and mint. It has about 160 grams of residual sugar (30 more than the Citron) and yet it comes across as less sweet an also airier in texture. I find it absolutely alluring.
