Maison Briottet, Dijon, France
La Maison Edmond Briottet was established in 1836 and, today, the family still oversees every aspect of the production of their fruit liqueurs. Strict selection of only the best fruit provides the base and, with careful maceration over ten weeks, they manage to achieve a wonderful concentration of fruit and viscosity.
The berries are macerated in a water and alcohol solution for about 10 weeks as it is the best way to extract all flavours from these berries. Consequently, the alcohol-containing juice thus obtained is called infusion. After that, they add French white sugar to obtain a creme.
The colours strike you first. They are like jewels sparkling in the night sky, wonderfully pure and natural with the most fantastic intensity.
