Gelas Fruit Liqueurs

Fruit Liquor Cordialor : a revolutionary recipe!  In France, during the reign of Louis XIV (17th century), the traditional liquors were “Popula” and “Rossolis” made by his apothecary Fagon. Chamomile, aniseed, fennel, dill, coriander and caraway were macerated in “eau-de-vie” and sweetened water. In 1775, the manufacture of many liqueurs was listed by Jacques-François Demachy (1728-1803), master apothecary in Paris, along with major brands appearing such as Chartreuse or Benedictine. Demachy created the "cordial potions", (good for all hearts), from which the word "cordial" was created. Thus, Thomas Gélas developed in 1798, his first recipe by blending distillated orange and neutral alcohol. His grandson, Baptiste Gélas, founder of the Armagnacs Gélas in 1865, refined the recipe by substituting neutral alcohol with Armagnac: The “Cordialor” was born.
