Bauchant is a sweet liqueur made from Curaçao orange extracts combined with aged Napoléon brandies.
It is triple-distilled to give it a strong orange fragrance and taste. It comes in a rounded, dark brown glass bottle.
Bauchant is made by the Maison Roullet-Fransac in Chermignac, France (Chermignac is in the heart of the Cognac region.) The family-owned company, founded in 1838, also makes cognacs and the liqueur called Poirelle.
Bauchant is 40% abv.
Bauchant can be drunk straight up at room temperature or over ice, or used in dessert recipes. In France, it is used also for Margaritas.
