Established in 1836 by Edmond Briottet in the Dijon region of France, Maison Briottet has established itself as one of France’s finest liqueur producers. By using only the ripest fruit and freshest ingredients, Briottet is a favourite amongst mixologists, and the products produced can be found in some of the world’s top cocktail bars and restaurants. Expertise is key to the production of these exceptional liqueurs, and – through blending with the correct proportion of sugars to achieve the balance between fruit flavour, sweetness, acidity and alcohol – a perfect balance is always achieved. This deeply coloured Creme de Violette is made by steeping violet petals in spirit before dilution and sweetening. An indispensable mixing liqueur, Creme de Violette is a keystone of classic cocktails, and a must for those after the perfect aviation. This fabulous example is one of the best available.
