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. Originally, the family were primarily negociants of Burgundy wine, involved with ageing, blending, bottling and selling the wines. 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. To make Briottet Creme de Cacao Ambre, cocoa beans are picked from cocoa trees in Ghana, roasted and macerated in alcohol to obtain an infusion. Sugar is then added to obtain a strong sweet liqueur.
