Merlet Crème de Cassis 375ml


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Very deep dark violet robe, almost black. Extremely powerful ripe blackcurrant nose. Sharp notes of spices, mint, basil and black tea. It's thick consistency witnesses a maximum fruits concentration. One sip reminds ups of our grandmother's home-made jam. The blackcurrant aftertaste lingers endlessly in the mouth.

Wine EnthusiastSave this plush black-currant liqueur for adding bold flavor and color to Kir royales-it's almost too thick for straight-up sipping. This deep plum-colored liquid is so viscous, it clings to the sides of the glass, and feels alarmingly like swallowing liquefied jam. Yet, it's a remarkably true expression of fruit: earthy, round and balanced between sweet and tart flavors. Add to gin for a bramble cocktail.
