Crème de Cassis
Each summer, the master liquorist selects the plots. The berries are quickly taken to the cellar where they macerate in high quality alcohol for many more months compared to other traditional crème de cassis. It follows a time-honored process aimed at obtaining concentrated flavors and pure aromas of freshly picked berries. Opaque, deep purple color. “Über-berry” fragrances that are complex and delicate; the nose develops to reveal notes of bramble, vegetation/leaves and black pepper. On the palate, it is tangy, jammy and complex with an intense richness and viscosity balanced by a refreshing acidity. 18% Alcohol. The liqueur is best appreciated neat, on the rocks or as a cocktail: with white wine for a Kir or with Champagne for a Kir Royal. A small amount goes a long way to flavor ice-creams, sorbets or other desserts.
