Description: The black currants (aka cassis) for this liqueur are sourced from the commune of Dijon. Artisans, like Gabriel Boudier, have a long tradition of making natural liqueurs. In business since 1874 and rooted in rigorously maintaining the strict methods of production, this cassis is "the creme of the crop of Creme de Cassis." Definition: Cassis is a liqueur that is made by infusing a neutral grain spirit with crushed blackcurrants. Commercial production of cassis started over 150 years ago in Burgundy, France; subject to local appellation laws, bottles labled 'Creme de Cassis de Dijon must contain blackcurrants grown in Dijon, while bottles labled Cassis de Bourgogne may use blackcurrants grown in the greater Burgundy region. The liqueur must have a minimum alcoholic content of 15% ABV, and contain at least 400 grams of sugar/liter.
