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 with Hoegaarden.
Enhances normal french beer to another level Delicious !
What a great product. In the USA back at the first of the last century when Basque from Spain and France emigrated to the USA to become sheep herders they ended up living in boarding houses in the off season. A boarding house bartend in California invented what we call the Picon. Includes just a little grenadine, Picon Liqueur, soda water with a float of Brandy and a twist of lemon. Great drink. Salute
A taste of France at home
I remember the original version available in the USA in the 1970s--excellent. More recently obtained and consumed this "new" formula in Annecy, France--different but also excellent. A fine alternative to Italian, Swiss, and American "bitters."
I'm a long time wheat beer drinker and have never come across Picon. On holiday in Spain this year I bought some old postcards, one of which was an advert for Picon. Serendipity! Read about out, bought a bottle on spec - absolutely great. Lovely with Hoegaarden (as per the website narrative) but also sensational with Erdinger.
