Description

Briottet Creme de Fraise des Bois is a strawberry liqueur made with wild strawberries in Dijon. Briottet’s Wild Strawberry liqueur is the result of macerating several varieties of strawberries, and this gives rise to the liqueur’s inimitable wild strawberry taste.

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.

The wild strawberry is small red, extremely delicate fruit. Picked by the Romans for its therapeutic virtues, wild strawberries spread through Europe during the 17th century. Briottet Creme de Fraise des Bois is produced according to the traditional maceration process.
