Marchande de Picons (Picon Merchant)
Picon is a caramel-coloured, flavoured bitters drunk as an apertif, which traditionally accompanies beer in the east and north of France.
It is made from a base of fresh ornages which are dried and mixed with a solution of alcohol which is distilled. Picon also contains gentian and quinquina in equal measures. Sugar, syrup and caramel are added last.
