Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Genepi or Genepy is a general French term for several Alpine plants of the genus Artemisia and the liqueurs made out of them.The word genepi has uncertain etymological origins, but it is strongly associated to the Savoy region.The "Petit Larousse Illustre"says that genepi "is the generic name of different aromatic plants typical of the Alps." Zingarelli defines the term "genepi" by distinguishing between two meanings. The first refers to the plant, an unspecified member of the Artemisia genus; the second definition refers to the beverage resulting from it and from other Alpine plants. The Enciclopedia Espasa contends that "genippi" is the native Alpine word for a particular group of plants of the genus Artemisia . This encyclopedia enumerates their names and characteristics.show more
