Briottet Liqueur de Menthe Verte, a green mint liqueur, is a great alternative to green Creme de Menthe. A standard liqueur like this one is not as sweet as a Creme Liqueur and this version is bottled at a higher abv 21% compared to normal creme de menthe. 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 Verteis made by macerating mint leaves, mainly peppermint leaves in pure alchohol. The infusion is then distilled to extract all the minty essential oils, flavours and aromas and is then sweetened with sugar prior to bottling.
