Something to bring home from france
 
Does anyone know of a specific beer, wine, or liquor that I can only get in France. Here for one more day and want to try to bring something home we don't have in the states. Any ideas would be great.
Thanks

I would think anything from Bouffay, Sancerroise, Saint-Rieul (as they are the only names I know) and I'm pretty sure I've never seen them near me in the midwest.

Are those beers or something else? Thanks for the reply too

I know that the Paris airport duty free sells very cheap cuban cigars. If you're into that sort of thing.

They are breweries.

a good french absinthe? benoit serres liqueur a la violette would be a good thign to get, to buy it and have it shipped to the us is over 100 bucks, its a violet liqueur, purple in colour thats used to make the classic aviation cocktail. now almost impossible to find any brand in the USA and the benoit serres is the best brand

Not exactly something you want to go through US Customs with in your bag though.
