Briottet Creme de Cassis de Dijon Double is a blackcurrant liqueur made by Maison Briottet.
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 Creme de Cassis), the company progressively focused its activities on producing fruit crèmes, liquors, brandies and marcs de Bourgogne. Briottet are rightly famous for producing the finest Creme de Cassis. Years ago the family chose the unique Noir de Bourgogne Blackcurrent variety as it produces the finest aromas and depth of flavour. For the last 20 years three farmers have exclusively supplied the blackcurrants, which make the Briottet Creme de Cassis de Dijon.
