Briottet Liqueur de Pain d’Epices is a gingerbread liqueur made in France by Maison Edmond Briottet.
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.
Briottet’s liqueurs are made by macerating ingredients in pure alcohol which is then sweetened with fine sugar to make liqueur or creme liqueurs, no artificial ingredients are used. The Briottet Liqueur de Pain d’Epices is packed with ginger and spicy notes and is basically Christmas time in a bottle!
