Bottle of Suze

Suze (French pronunciation: ​[syz]) is a French brand of bitters flavoured with the roots of the plant gentian, normally drunk as an apéritif.

History[edit]

Suze was invented in Sonvilier (Switzerland) and then bought by Fernand Moureaux in 1885, but was not put on the market until 1889.[1] It is still in production, now under the ownership of the Pernod group. In 1912, the artist Pablo Picasso depicted a bottle of Suze in his collage Verre et bouteille de Suze.[2]
