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.

We invite you to discover this incredible tale of ancient and contemporary history at Le Palais Bénédictine by exploring the Experiences designed for all those fired by passion and curiosity.

You can also enjoy the Tasting Room, Tea Room and Shop. In the winter garden, you will have the opportunity to taste the subtle aromas of Bénédictine and its cocktails. You can also try Bénédictine delicacies (spice madeleines, Bénédictine cakes, Bénédictine ice cream), but also hot and cold drinks, lunch snacks. The Bar and Shop are on the ground floor level.

Le Palais Bénédictine hosts are on hand throughout to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all of our guests.
