Founded in 1845 and located in Dijon, France, L’Héritier-Guyot is one of the oldest producers of crème de cassis and remains the undisputed top estate-produced liqueur brand in France. Guyot owns 40 acres of cassis orchards in the renowned Côte d’Or bordering Vougeot, home of some of the most highly acclaimed Burgundy wines. This land is also perfectly suited to the cultivation of black currants and allows Guyot to enjoy continuity of supply while maintaining quality standards that are second to none. The chalky clay soils along the western edge of the Côte d’Or yield preciously low quantities of exceptionally aromatic, highly concentrated, rich black currants. This crème de cassis is excellent as a digestif, or used to enhance countless refreshing apéritifs.
Pour the crème de cassis in a Champagne flute, then top up with Domaine Carneros Brut.
This crème de cassis has a full, ripe-fruit and richly aromatic bouquet. The sweetness is mouthwatering rather than cloying; a perfect foil to the bitter-spice bite of the currants.
