Crème de Mure (Blackberry), Giffard

Emilie 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, Emile created a Menthe liqueur that was as delicious as it was refreshing. Emilie 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 Emilie’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.

Tasting Notes

The countryside in Angers in the Loire Valley is lush with wild blackberries. Giffard macerates the fresh berries to create this natural liqueur, rich in flavor and color. The fresh juice gives Giffard Crème de Mûre a natural tartness and the vegetal quality of blackberry vines. The Creme de Mure smells of fresh blackberry compote and tastes of bright red fruit, mellowing to honeyed dark berries on the finish.
