Briottet Creme de Bergamote is a liqueur made from the Bergamot Orange citrus fruit.

Maison Briottet is a family business, founded in 1836, and has been run by the 6th generation of the Briottet family, Claire and Vincent, since 2014. The Maison is located in the centre of the town of Dijon in the Burgundy wine-growing region. Originally, the family were negociants of Burgundy wine, involved with ageing, blending, bottling and selling the wines. Following the development, and massive popularity of the Blanc Cassis Aperitif (white wine with Crème de Cassis also known as a Kir), in the 1900s, the company progressively focused its activities on producing fruit crèmes, liquors, brandies and Marcs de Bourgogne.

Maison Briottet maintains a very high level of quality. It is the selection of the ripest fruit, locally sourced where possible, from the most suitable cultivars that provides for the finest flavours. The first step on the ladder in the process is contracting the right growers to produce the finest, best quality, ripe fruit. Then, at the headquarters, the fruits undergo carefully 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 to create top of the range crèmes and liqueurs.

Bergamot Oranges are grown mainly in Calabria in Italy and it is probably most famous as the citrus-y flavouring in Earl Grey tea. The fruit is not generally grown for consumption as it is somewhat acidic and bitter. However it can be used to make marmalades, confit etc. production of which involve addition of large amounts of sugar. The main usage is the extraction of bergamot oil from the fruit’s rind.

Briottet Creme de Bergamote is a versatile ingredient for creating a wide range of cocktails and desserts.
