Customer Rating

This famous French orange bitter liqueur is a staple in its home country, where it is mixed with pilsner or wheat beer to create a potent brew known simply as Picon Biere. Created in 1830, Picon also contains essences of gentian and quinine. It is particularly delicious (and dangerous) with Hoegaarden.

    Years ago a friend who owned an Hotel and bar in France introduced me to this almost like using as a cordial and then adding lager. I have been in love with it ever since and hate it when I run out. It is a log cheaper in France of course. I am going to Strasbourg in the spring so hope to buy a couple of bottles there, it really give a kick to lager but is quite strong. On reading some reviews on Picon I see it can be used for a variety of drinks, maybe half a dozen botts wouldn''t go amiss. !!

    My cocktail invention: 1.5fl oz gold rum (of your choice), 1fl oz Briottet Creme de Fraises des Bois (Tosolini is the only alternative I''ve found that approaches this), 1fl oz Amer Picon. The Amer Picon is the optional ingredient here but it adds an extra dimension. Don''t drink more than 1 - it works out strong.

    I used it to make a Brooklyn cocktail for my wife. It is a variant of a Manhattan. She liked it and want me to occasionally make another.

    Picon bier in France makes all bier better except Belgium bier, it holds excellence alone.

    My favourite cafe (the Cafe Brancardieres in Lourdes) makes a cocktail called a Cesar. It is Picon Amer, white wine and a number of other "secret" ingredients which no amount of wheedling or bribery will coax from them. Quite outstanding as an aperatif.
