Chambord // France
Chambord Liqueur is a black raspberry liqueur. It is made from an infusion of raspberries and blackberries in neutral alcohol. Other ingredients include Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, honey, and cognac which the master blender balances all together to create a concentrate. Sugar, neutral alcohol, and water are added after filtering. Although this French liqueur is based on a recipe from the late 17th century, it wasn't released commercially until 1981. Bottled at 16.5% ABV.
Fruit LiqueursFruit(s) is the the dominant flavor for the liqueur. Often, but not always, the primary fruit flavor will be listed on the bottle. And sometimes the fruit will be listed in French. The base spirit is often neutral spirit, but other liquors such as brandy can be used. Sugar is added before bottling. ABV varies widely.
"Chambord's reddish amber hue is about what you'd expect from something flavored with raspberries and blackberries. On the nose, its concentrated berry aroma is reminiscent of fruit leather. Its flavor, however, is more muted: It's slightly sweet, with a touch of black cherry lingering beneath berry-vanilla notes. It would add a nice fruity sweetness to cocktails, or even compliment chocolate flavors well."
