Briottet Liqueur de Menthe Blanche is a (colourless) white mint liqueur made in France by Edmond Briottet.
Briottet Liqueur de Menthe Blanche is a great alternative in cocktails or desserts for green Creme de Menthe if you don’t want any green colouring. Maison Briottet is a family business, founded in 1836. 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. Subsequently, properly 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 create these excellent crèmes and liqueurs.
Briottet Liqueur de Menthe Blanche is made by macerating mint leaves, mainly peppermint leaves, prior to sweetening with sugar. Bottled at a good strength of 24%.
