An architectural masterpiece combining neo-gothic and neo-renaissance styles, the Palais Bénédictine was built at the end of the 19th century for the Fécamp wine merchant Alexandre Le Grand in honour of Bénédictine liqueur. As legend has it, Le Grand found the recipe, dating back to 1510, in an old manuscript written by a Benedictine monk, and decided to recreate and sell it himself. In addition to the Bénédictine distillery, the palace is also home to an impressive collection of religious art.
In the heart of the Palais Bénédictine, the unique Salle des Abbés (Abbots’ Room) is available for private hire, be it for professional gatherings, drinks receptions, meals, concerts or any other special evening events.
You can propose exclusive events to your guests by selecting from our range of Bénédictine Experiences. We also provide a list of suppliers for your event who have been selected based on the high quality of their services and products.
Alexandre Le Grand’s former offices can also be hired by groups wishing to do our special Bénédictine workshops. Learn all about the art of distillation from a Bénédictine connoisseur, follow in the footsteps of the monks who invented the liqueur, or even uncover their deepest, darkest alchemist secrets as part of a corporate event booked with us!
