French liqueur Bénédictine D.O.M is celebrating its 500th anniversary this year, and has launched the limited edition Black Monk variant to commemorate the event.

The Black Monk is named in reference to the recipe for Bénédictine D.O.M having initially been devised by a Venetian monk called Dom Bernardo Vincelli.

The liqueur, which has its roots in the Abbey of Fécamp in Normandy, is still distilled in the town at the Bénédictine Palais.
