Definition: Made of herbs, roots and sugar with a Cognac base. Originally used to revive tired Benedictine monks beginning in 1510, the term D.O.M. found on the label stands for Deo Optimo Maximo which translates to "to God, most good, most great" reminds us of the liqueur's origins.

One of the best ways to taste the distinct flavors of Benedictine is in a B&B in which the liqueur is mixed with brandy. The brand also bottles this mix in an aptly named liqueur: B&B.

  • 40% alc/volume (80 proof)
  • Retails for around $29/750ml bottle
