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.

    I drank this in France and haven’t been able to find it anywhere. It really enhances the taste of beer.

    Discovered this Beer additive in an Irish Pub in Lille, Northern France and instantly fell in love with it. It's a great way to drink Lager beer, or indeed Cider for that matter. Whisky Exchange appears to be the only online source for it in the UK; thank goodness for that.

    Super! Recently it was recommended by a waiter in Paris when I asked if they had any dark beer (which they had not). It was a great find! Ordered it the following day elsewhere (it was more strongly orange flavoured!) and now back home in UK my wife provided me with a bottle so we at present are all slightly tiddly tonight!

    I first had picon punch as a 13 year old boy with my grandfather at a very famous restaurant in Reno, Nevada. They have the greatest Basque food and the picon punch makes it the finest meal you will ever experience.

    Had this the first time I went to Strasbourg as an exchange student in 1995. Went back in 2000... same love affair with Picon-Biere!!!

    A tiny amount of this excellent liqueur makes any 'average' lager beer taste absolutely fabulous!

    Turns a glass of cheap french lager into a glass of nectar like a real dark ale, you only need a dash, love it.

    This was first consumed when I was an exchange student in France. I have loved it since. Add a dolop to your favorite cheap light beer and open your mind to a new experience...

    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.
