Saint Bruno’s Elixir

Once a year one of our brothers makes a monastic herbal liqueur, only 12 bottles are made at St. Mary’s Hermitage near Canterbury Kent. Prepared from a secret Sicilian recipe known only to Brother Paolo and results in a hazelnut liqueur that has an ABV of 40% and is 70% proof, incorporating fermented cereal grains, hazelnuts, 5 herbs and 2 fruits.  1 bottle is given to our bishop, 1 is given to Fr. Prior and 4 as gifts to supporters of St. Mary’s Hermitage.  The 6 remaining bottles are sold. To purchase a 50 cl. bottle of St. Bruno’s Elixir (£ 37.00 not including postage and packaging) please contact the Hermitage.
