    Is Parfait Amour readily available in liquor stores? I can't seem to find it.

    I cannot say I've ever seen it. The above article notes that there are similar products from two other producers, and those might be more widely available. I would check with large liquor stores.

    Dear D...

    Appears I've started something. I sent this to Imbibe Magazine last fall before Gourmet died.

    Saw mention of the re-introduction of Creme Yvette in Gourmet Magazine October 2009. Wondered where an ordinary Joe or Jane could buy the new juice? Is this something that only hot-shot NY or Chicago bartenders can buy???

    Then came my reply which was:

    Hi JB,

    Thank you for your email and I'm sorry for the delay in response to your question about Creme Yvette. I've been trying to track down a credible sales outlet for this elusive liqueur and it does not appear to be on the market yet. It seems that Imbibe was a wee bit too far ahead of the cutting edge this time! I will keep your email address handy and if I see any buzz about how to get your hands on it, I'll let you know!

    If we can be of any further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us!

    Cheers!
    Sarah

    So I looked for alternatives without much success. Parfait Amour may be lurking in the Tucson area, but...not an easy task. Guess I'll try to teach myself patience and keep looking. Thanks for your reply.

    Best,

    I'm sure you have done this already (it worked for me).... I typed Parfait Amour liqueur into the search line on Google. The third link on the results page was the "Shopping results for Parfait Amour liqueur." When I clicked on the link, there was a list of stores in my general area (upstate NY small town) along with the prices. Prices in my area range from $28.67 to $41.68 (including tax and shipping) for a 750 ml bottle if I order it online.

    Parfait d'Amour
    Parfait Amour is a liqueur. Purple in colour, it is often used in cocktails primarily for its colour, and is generally created from a Curaçao liqueur base.

    Parfait Amour appears to have several forms. The House of Lucas Bols in the Netherlands claims to have originated the liqueur. Their version appears to be a curaçao base, flavoured with rose petals, vanilla and almonds. Marie Brizard, a Bordeaux based distiller, has a product with a similar flavor profile. Another form, produced by DeKuyper, uses a spirit as its base, and is flavoured with lemon, coriander and violets.
    (Bols, Marie Braizard and DeKuyper are liqueur brands that are commonly sold in the USA. Perhaps your local store could special order a bottle for you.)

    Parfait Amour is primarily produced and sold in France and the Netherlands, although it is known to be available in the United States, Canada, Australia, Greece, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway. Parfair d'Amour can also be found on the island of St. Maarten.

    Parfait d'Amour can not be found in Atlantic Canada, Quebec, Ontario. Some other Canadian provinces do have it listed in their product line, but it is not easy to locate within Canada.

    Dee:

    Indeed, I have done that and found just what you did. Guess if I want the liqueur I will have to mail order it. Not sure I want to do that, nothing came up as I searched for anything in Tucson. My last resort is (1) one store downtown that sells unique things. Gourmet Magazine touted Creme Yvette as better tasting than the other varieties of purple liqueurs. Thanks for the input. If I find anything locally, I'll post about it after I try the cocktail I was interested in.
    Thanks again!
