Bonal Gentiane Quina
Spicy, earthy French aperitif known since 1865 as the “key to the appetite,” and said to prevent malaria. (Yes.) Mistelle base (unfermented grape juice with spirit) infused with gentian, quinine and herbs of the Grand Chartreuese mountains. Tradition is to drink neat with a twist, but Bonal also mixes with hard cider, sparkling wine, and Scotch or American whiskies. Excellent with hard, salty cheeses, salted nuts, or earthy, spicy foods.
