Palais Bénédictine


The story starts in 1510 at Fécamp Abbey when legend has it that the benedictine monk, Dom Bernardo Vincelli, created a secret elixir which met with such resounding success that the benedictine monks at Fécamp continued to produce it up until the French Revolution, a troubled era in the course of which the recipe for the famous elixir was lost.

The story goes that one fine day in 1863 Alexandre Le Grand, a wine trader from Fécamp, quite by chance discovered the composition of this elixir lost during the Revolution in his library. Intrigued, he decided to decipher the recipe and after a year’s effort succeeded in reconstituting it. The elixir thus became a liqueur that he called Bénédictine in tribute to the benedictine monk, Dom Bernardo Vincelli. He had the sumptuous Palais Bénédictine built to provide a prestigious setting for the distillery of the liqueur (which is still in operation today) and for his collection of works of art.
