Description

Briottet Creme de Bergamote is a liqueur made from the Bergamot Orange citrus fruit. Maison Briottet is a family business, founded in 1836. 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 cremes de fruits 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.
