"I have spent literally years of research, crafting formulas and finding the best ginger sources," said John Cooper, founder of Domaine de Canton. "It is an honor that Domaine de Canton has been acknowledged in this way by the industry; a lot of passion has gone into this, we didn't set out to just make a good ginger liqueur, but to make the definitive ginger liqueur."
While ginger has long been used as an ingredient in cooking, it was seldom found on cocktail menus. Domaine de Canton is moving ginger in to the cocktail and culinary spotlight. Together, the carefully blended ingredients of Domaine de Canton, create an intense and complex taste that is delicious as it is sublime.
