Creme de Mure, Briottet
To be drunk as an aperitif with a dry white wine such as Aligoté, with a sparkling wine or straight with an ice cube. The recipe for this product has evolved as techniques have developed -- about 15 years ago, it was made with Blackcurrant Cream using macerated blackberries. This technique did not bring out the fruit's true flavours. The extraction process employed to obtain the natural flavours of the blackberry is much more effective and it brings out all of the taste of the small fruit.
"This light and nuanced blackberry liqueur is ideal for adding color and flavor to cocktails. Garnet in hue, with a berry-like aroma and flavor with a gentle clove note—this finishes well balanced between tart and sweet." Wine Enthusiast Magazine, 95 Points
A former wine establishment, the Edmond Briottet firm was set up in 1836. Given the growing popularity of the "white wine-cassis" aperitif, Edmond Briottet decreased operating as a wine trader and instead switched over gradually to producing Crème de Cassis. Since then, each successive generation of the Briottet family has worked at the firm.
The combination of the finest ingredients and Briottet's expertise enables them to produce liqueurs and creams of the highest quality. They have more than 50 different liqueurs including the classic peach liqueur (crème de pêche) and raspberry liqueur (crème de framboise).
The difference between creams and liqueurs arises out of the proportion of sugar employed -- a liqueur contains 100 grammes of sugar per liter at least, versus 250 grammes at least as regards a cream.
