wormwood liqueur


Pale yellow genepy is made with dried artemisia or wormwood flowers (Artemisia mutellina), the same plant as absinthe, which grows wild in the French-Italian Alps; the liqueur, generally drunk as a digestivo, is made by mixing the flowers and stems with vodka or pure grain alcohol. Some makers call it Genepì.

Piedmont's Genepy autoctono delle valli cuneesi, made only from the plants grown in the valleys of Cuneo above 1500m, has an exceptionally delicate flavour and is included in the Ark of Taste.
