Briottet Creme de Cacao Ambre is a chocolate flavoured liqueur made by Edmond Briottet. It is exactly the same as the colourless Briottet Creme de Cacao Blanc but is a dark brown colour. 

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.

Briottet Creme de Cacao Ambre is produced using a complex process which entails the alcoholic extraction of the main flavours of whole roasted cocoa beans means that the cocoa taste is retained. A hint of Bourbon vanilla is the only other main ingredient used in Briottet’s Dark Cocoa liqueur.

Tasting Notes

Rich and chocolatey, with notes of vanilla and a hint of roasted nuts. On the palate it is sweet with a rich, chocolatey flavor. The dominant flavour is that of cocoa, with notes of vanilla and a subtle hint of caramel. Smooth and thick, with a slight bitterness that helps balance the sweetness. The finish of Briottet Creme de Cacao Ambre is long and sweet, with a lingering flavor of cocoa and a hint of vanilla.

To Serve

A delicious and versatile liqueur that is perfect for sipping on its own, over ice, or using as an  ingredient in cocktails and mixed drinks. Great for adding a chocolatey twist to classic cocktails like the Martini or the Grasshopper.
