As is the case as regards all of Briottet's cremes de cassis, for this Dijon Creme de Cassis 20% they use the most prestigious blackcurrant variety. Indeed, “Noir de Bourgogne” variety (meaning Black of Burgundy). These berries are harvested exclusively in Burgundy in France.
The blackcurrant berries are macerated in a water and alcohol solution for about 10 weeks. Maceration gives the best result to extract all flavours from that berries. The alcohol-containing juice thus obtained is called infusion. Then, they add French white sugar to obtain this creme de cassis.
This liqueur is Briottet's top-of-the-range blackcurrant liqueur due to its high blackcurrant berries content. Their ancestral know-how means that they produce premium-quality cassis.
We recommend that this product be employed for such diverse uses as cooking, desserts, cocktails and, of course, the ever-popular white wine-blackcurrant liqueur drink.
