Mêlé Cassis 24%
A 180th anniversary product made with a mix of two indispensable products of our region: Crème de Cassis de Dijon and Marc de Bourgogne.
For our Crème de Cassis 20% we use the most prestigious blackcurrant variety: the Noir de Bourgogne. The berries we use are harvested exclusively in Burgundy, France.
The blackcurrant berries are macerated in water and neutral alcohol for about 2 months, in order that all of their flavors are extracted from them. The alcohol-containing juice thus obtained is called infusion. This infusion is the basic ingredient which goes into crème de cassis, to which we add white French sugar.
Our Très Vieux Marc de Bourgogne AOC is the result of distillation of brandies made from grape marc from the prestigious Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune wine-growing areas. In order to produce a very special Burgundian marc brandy, we age it for 5 to 10 years in French oak barrels with capacities of 228 litres (Burgundy barrels) in our old cellar.
Mêlé Cassis Briottet is the perfect mix between roundness of cassis and the real taste of Terroir of Marc de Bourgogne. It’s a real Burgundian after-dinner drink. Mêlé Cassis appeared in the 1870’s and was popular in the 19th century but finally disappeared on Burgundian tables.
Vincent and Claire Briottet wanted to honor their great grand-parents who enjoyed this “digestif” at the end of a meal and to allow people to rediscover this typical Burgundian product.
Neat, as an after dinner drink, in cocktails, on vanilla ice liqueur or deserts.
