French Liqueurs

Hi all,

I am finishing up a 7 month stint in France (have been living and teaching in the Nord Pas-de-Calais region) and am wondering what I should attempt to bring back with me. I want to start a well stocked bar in my apartment when I get back to the USA and am wondering what distinctly French liqueurs I should bring back- specifically things that are either hard to find or more expensive in the US. I have browsed the site and seen some suggestions such as Amer Picon, Benedictine, St Germain, Chartreuse, Creme de violette and cassis but am looking for other input.

Thank you!
