Clacquesin is a French aperitif which was said to have first been made in 1860 by Paul Clacquesin, although on the label it is stated that this Masion was founded in 1775. Clacquesin is a blend from Norwegian pine buds and 29 aromatic botanicals, which are to this day kept a close secret. Awarded with a Golden Medal in Bruxelles (1897), Paris (1900) and London (1908) this Parisian aperitif was once available across the world but due to the outbreak of WWII and the death of Pauline Clacquesin in 1942 production was more or less seized. Paul Clacquesin himself passed away in 1911.
Recently this ancient brand was re-introduced by Charlotte Bataille Sauzey, a direct descendent from Paul Clacquesin so, after 75 years, the audience is allowed to enjoy Clacquesin oncemore.
