Mathilde Cassis Liqueur
Mathilde // France
Mathilde Cassis Liqueur is made with two varieties of black currants from the Burgundy region: Noir de Bourgogne and Blackdown. The fruit is infused in liquor for a lengthy period of time and is then bottled at 16 percent ABV. Cassis is essential in a variety of classic cocktails like the Kir Royale and the Diablo.
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.
"With a reddish plum hue, Mathilde Cassis has a deep aroma of dark berries and a touch of molasses. It's just as rich in flavor, coating the palate with notes of raisin and prune. It would be delicious on its own, but lends itself well to classics like the Kir Royale. It would also do well to add a hint of color and depth to citrus cocktails like the Whiskey Sour."
