Archangel Raphael A LEGENDARY ORIGIN

The history of ST RAPHAËL dates back to 1830.
French Doctor Juppet was working to develop a quinine-based aperitif.

After working endlessly late into the night, his sight began to fall...

...He then remembered the Biblical epitaph where the archangel Raphaël cured Tobias of his blindness.

ST RAPHAËL productionAnxious to regain his sight, he pursued his efforts and placed his new elixir
under the holy invocation of the archangel. He thereby recovered his sight
and managed to finish the recipe of ST RAPHAËL.
