Briottet Creme de Myrtille is a French blueberry liqueur made by Edmond Brittet in Dijon, Burgundy, France.

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 Myrtille is made from blueberries – originally from Eurasia and North America, blueberries, also known as bilberries or whortleberries, grow in mountainous areas at altitudes of 1000m. They are the size of a pea and are blue / black in colour.

Tasting Notes

Briottet Crème de Myrtille is a rich and sweet blueberry liqueur with a deep purple coluor. The aroma is dominated by ripe blueberries with a hint of floral notes. On the palate, the flavor is intense and fruity, with a smooth and velvety texture. The blueberry flavour is well-balanced and not overly sweet, with a slight tartness that gives it a refreshing quality. The finish is long and lingering, with a subtle hint of bitterness that complements the sweet fruitiness.
