Briottet Liqueur de Manzana Verde is a green apple liqueur made by Edmond Briottet, a family business located in Dijon, France and 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 Manzana Verde a colourless apple-flavoured liqueur made by macerating wild apples harvested in the Basque mountains (Manzana Verde is Spanish for Green Apple) in very pure alcohol before the infusion is sweetened with sugat to attain the right balance of fruit, sweetness and acidity.
