Salers is an aperitif made from Gentian roots, a wild plant which naturally grows on the volcanic hills of Auvergne and Haute Corrèze. From June to September, the ‘gentianaîres’ pull out the roots of these plants which weigh between 3 to 6 kg. The roots are then washed, crushed, steeped and distilled in copper stills in a bain-marie. Aromatic plants are then added to the resulting distillation. This is then aged in oak barrels for 2 years. This savoir-faire bestows Salers with an exceptionally powerful flavour. Fans of bitter aperitifs will especially enjoy it.
