- Maison Briottet is a family business, founded in 1836. Originally, the family were primarily negociants of Burgundy wine, involved with ageing, blending, bottling and selling the wines. Following the development of the blanc cassis aperitif (white wine with Crème de Cassis), the company progressively focused its activities on producing fruit crèmes, liquors, brandies and marcs de Bourgogne. The current managing director, Gérard Briottet, represents the fourth generation, and maintains the tradition started by his great grandfather, Edmond Briottet. Maison Briottet maintains a very high level of quality. It is the selection of the ripest fruit from the most suitable cultivars that provides for the finest flavours; therefore contracting the right growers to produce the correct fruit is the first step on the ladder. Subsequently, properly observed maceration with very pure neutral alcohol, and blending with the correct proportion of sugars to achieve the balance between fruit flavour, sweetness, acidity and alcohol create these excellent crèmes and liqueurs. The wild strawberry is small red, extremely delicate fruit. Picked by the Romans for its therapeutic virtues, wild strawberries spread through Europe during the 17th century. Liqueur à Fraises des Bois is produced according to the traditional maceration process. Try it mixed with white wines, crémant or champagne instead of cassis. It can also be used in a variety of desserts. It has a bright strawberry, cherry red colour, fresh, distinct nose with a touch of herbal spice behind the fruit and a well-defined flavour with just a hint of home-made jam.
An absolutely incredible wild strawberry liqueur from Edmond Briottet. This Fraise des Bois liqueur is made by macerating the fresh fruits in alcohol. Sugar is then added. And nothing else.
