Launched in 2007 using a revised recipe from the twentieth century and produced in Jarnac, France, this small-batch, ultra-premium liqueur blends Vietnamese baby ginger with Grande Champagne VSOP Cognac. Its distinctively bright and fresh, yet rich and complex ginger flavor makes it an integral cocktail component in drinks like a French Ginger martini or a Ginger Sidecar, and it won a Gold medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

"Domaine de Canton is one of those rare spirits that actually tastes better than the raw ingredient used to make it...Canton’s cognac mellows the ginger perfectly while still keeping its essence. It’s irresistible."

Product Details

This small-batch, ultra-premium French ginger liqueur was inspired by the French tradition in which sweet and fresh elixirs were fortified by fine eaux de vie and Cognac. Since spicy and aromatic elixirs became popular with the French during the time of colonial Indochine, it uses the subtle spiciness of baby ginger grown locally in modern day Indochine. Its recipe was re-launched in 2007, using a revised recipe from the late twentieth century, and is named for French ginger-producing estates. For it, Vietnamese baby ginger is blended with Grande Champagne VSOP Cognac, and packaged in a bamboo-shaped bottle. It lends a distinctively bright and fresh, yet rich and complex ginger flavor to cocktails like a French Ginger Martini or a Ginger Sidecar. It's also great mixed with sparkling wine and a twist of lemon, and a small amount can replace the sweet Vermouth in a Manhattan.

About the Producer

Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur was inspired by the French tradition in which sweet and fresh elixirs were fortified by fine eaux de vie and Cognac. Spicy and aromatic elixirs became popular with the French during the time of colonial Indochine, and this spirit is inspired by the subtle spiciness of the baby ginger grown locally in modern day Indochine; the result is a recipe which evokes an era of tropical romance and continental sophistication that is both elegant and timeless. Domaine de Canton is produced by Maurice Cooper and Company, an independent, family-owned, spirits company that produces and markets quality products. In 2007, John Cooper (one of N. J. Cooper's two sons) revived the name and idea of the original Canton Ginger & Cognac Liqueur, following a new recipe, and in 2014, Heaven Hill purchased the brand from Maurice Cooper.
