Elixir de Spa

During the second half of the 17th century, the Ardennes village of Spa became the fashionable wellness resort for the rich, as well as diplomats, writers, artists… and the clergy. There, the Capuchin monks founded a church and a monastery, alongside idyllic gardens with which to welcome visitors. The monks distilled a surprising liqueur with a subtle flavour and a smooth aroma, created from dozens of hand-selected aromatic plants, barks, and herbs. The alcoholic drink or Elixir was renowned for invigorating the stomach, and for its digestive effect.

It is no wonder that Elixir de Spa quickly became an international success and received many awards. The liqueur even received the oldest Belgian Royal Warrant of Appointment in 1869. During the French revolution, the Capuchin library was almost lost, and with it the recipe for Elixir d’Anvers. Fortunately, a book collector retrieved the lost manuscript.

Today, FX de Beukelaer produces the authentic Elixir de Spa in beautiful bottles, and has done so for the past 60 years. Its unparalleled flavour and exceptional, elegant aroma combine well with many ingredients. Surprise your guests and yourself with the creative dishes and original cocktails from our recipe booklets. Enjoy!
