The « LE PUR » cassis, premier jus vierge (first virgin juice) is made exclusively from « Noir de Bourgogne » blackcurrants, which give it exceptional aromatic and taste qualities. The juice of the fruit, which has macerated for 10-12 weeks in neutral alcohol, is collected without pressing, hence the name « premier jus vierge ».
For the most famous of all French Aperitif, mix 1/5 of Crème de Cassis with 4/5 of white wine. In France, we call it ” un kir” and we drink it chilled before a meal.
You can chose to replace white wine with Cider to make a “kir Breton”, with Champagne to make a “Kir Royal” or with red wine to make a “Communard”. Blackcurrant liquor is the traditional one to make kir however, you can use other liquore such as Raspberry, Blackberry, Violette, wild strawberries etc…
In the1950’s, Vincent Jacoulot’s descendants naturally complemented the Marcs and Fines de Bourgogne production with that of fruit crèmes and liqueurs, respecting the company’s premium quality philosophy. The first recipes were inspired by local fruit (blackcurrants of the Noir de Bourgogne variety, vineyard peaches, Burgundy sloes, etc. ).
Creative and innovative, Maison Jacoulot has since extended its range to meet the demands of liqueur and cocktail lovers, as well as industry professionals (barmen, sommeliers, mixologists…), and now offers over 20 different flavours.
Classic (Blackcurrant, Blackberry, Mint, Lemon) or more contemporary (Violet, Rose,Cherry-Ginger, Raspberry-Pepper, Chestnut), enjoyed neat or in a cocktail, Jacoulot crèmes and liqueurs come in a broad array of flavours for you to explore.
