A gold medal winner at the Drinks Business Liqueurs Masters 2011 Cassis is Briottets flagship product and where their liqueur business started. For our Crème de Cassis Briottet use the most prestigious variety of blackcurrant -- the "Noir de Bourgogne" (black Burgundy) variety, which is only grown in the Côte d'Or County in Burgundy. These blackcurrant berries are macerated in a water-alcohol solution for about 10 weeks in order that all of their aromas are extracted from them. The juice containing alcohol thus obtained is then known as an "infusion". The infusion is the basic ingredient in Crème de Cassis, to which white sugar is added.

Description

Details

Maison Briottet is a family business, founded in 1836. Originally, the family were ageing, blending, bottling and selling wines. Following the development of the blanc cassis aperitif (white wine with Crème de Cassis), the company's activities evolved to producing fruit crèmes, liqueurs, brandies and marcs de Bourgogne.

The current managing director, Gérard Briottet, represents the fourth generation, and maintains the tradition started by his great grandfather, Edmond Briottet, of exclusively selling to the traditional sector of wine shops, delicatessens, hotels, bars and restaurants.

Maison Briottet maintains a very high level of quality. It is the selection of the ripest fruit from the most suitable cultivars that results in the finest flavours ; therefore contracting the right growers to produce the correct fruit is crucial. Subsequently, properly observed maceration with very pure neutral alcohol, and blending with the correct proportion of sugars to achieve the balance between fruit flavour, sweetness, acidity and alcohol create these excellent crèmes and liqueurs.
