Cassis Noir de Bourgogne, Giffard
Émile Giffard was a pharmacist before he was a distiller. It started in 1885, when the scorching heat of the summers in France inspired him to create something that would cool and refresh his clientele. Using steam distillation of Mitcham peppermint, Émile created a Menthe liqueur that was as delicious as it was refreshing. Émile promptly turned his pharmacy into a distillery and established the tradition and quality for which Giffard is known worldwide. Four generations and over a century later, The Giffard family continues Émile’s tradition, using the finest ingredients and time-tested methods to create their liqueurs. Today, the care taken to create and produce one remains the same.

Exclusively made from slowly macerated “Noir de Bourgogne” cassis berries from the Loire Valley, these rich, intense, and aromatic dark berries are the classic choice used in both a Kir and a Kir Royale. The Cassis de Noir de Bourgogne smells of ripe fruit with a touch of cassis leaves. The crisp, piquant berry flavor fades when chilled, bringing out bracing vegetal notes.
