Briottet Liqueur de Mandarine is a mandarin liqueur made in Dijon, France. 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 Crème de Cassis), the company progressively focused its activities on producing fruit crèmes, liquors, brandies and marcs de Bourgogne. The current managing director, Gérard Briottet, represents the fourth generation, and maintains the tradition started by his great grandfather, Edmond Briottet. 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. Briottet Liqueur de Mandarine is made from mandarin distillate, which is made by distilling an infusion of alcohol and mandarin orange zest to help extract the essential oils and mandarin aromas and flavours. This is then sweetened with extra-fine white sugar. All ingedients are natural.
