Verveine du Velay Jaune de Pagès is sweeter than its big sister Verveine du Velay Verte, it is the combination of the scent of verbena leaves and many aromatic plants and herbs. Verveine du Velay Jaune is sweetened with a hint honey, it can be enjoyed as a cocktail or pure on ice, it is also used in cooking or pastry recipes. Verveine du Velay is a secret recipe like the production of Chartreuses des Pères Chartreux, it is made up of verbena leaves and many other plants, herbs and spices that will be used for maceration and distillation. These plants are introduced into copper stills with brandy and alcohol. These water bath stills provide gentle and slow heating. This method will capture the aromas and produce the distillates which will serve as the basis for the production of the VERVEINE pages of the VELAY. The master distiller then proceeds to assemble all the ingredients: alcoholates, plant infusions, verbena leaf infusions, honey from Auvergne, sugar and cognac according to the recipes. Each Verbena from Velay is left to age in the cellars for months, they will slowly improve in oak barrels and acquire softness and finesse.
