Sancta was a liqueur produced by the Benedictines of the Abbey of Faverney in Haute-Saone, with a recipe believed to include 70 to 80 various plants, requiring several successive distillations. Its complexity is likened to that of Grande Chartreuse or Bénédictine. The Abbey of Faverney, known for the Miracle of the Holy Hosts, adds historical and spiritual depth to Sancta's legacy, rooting it in local tradition and monastic heritage. After the death of Madame Garret from Menoux, who previously managed the liqueur production, the Parisian Boulanger family acquired the recipe and revitalized the brand with new commercial strategies, such as updated packaging and national advertising campaigns after World War I.

Sancta is a representation of the economic activity of Faverney from a bygone era, now largely forgotten even among connoisseurs of ancient alcohols and discontinued brands, except for some locals near Faverney. Over time, the Boulanger family transitioned production to anise-flavored spirits, following the banned absinthe market, reflecting a period of economic adaptation post-war, until it eventually faded into obscurity​
