Briottet a family firm, circa 1836

Briottet a former wine establishment, the firm was set up in 1836. Given the growing popularity of the “white wine-cassis” aperitif, Edmond Briottet little by little stopped operating as a wine trader and instead switched over gradually to producing Crème de Cassis.

Saveurs Magazine, French Magazine of “art de Vivre” write in N°224 december 2015-january 2016 :”Probablement la meilleure crème de cassis de Dijon et donc de France. Que vous soyez amateur ou non, vous succomberez ! Une rareté.” :  “Probably the best crème de cassis de Dijon and so the best creme de cassis of France…”

Since then, each successive generation of the Briottet family has worked at the firm and the range of liquors has now more than 60 flavours.

Founded in 1836 the family estate of Maison Briottet gradually moved its focus to producing Fruit Cremes, Liquors, Brandies and Marcs de Bourgogne. The director, Gerard Briottet, the fourth generation, maintained the traditions started by his great grandfather, Edmond Briottet, of exclusively producing high quality premium products. Today Claire and Vincent are the fifth generation now moving towards the future.

The bottle is now engraved with the Briottet logo, label is redesigned and the closure is now grey for liquors with a “tongue” to have an easy opening. New look but no worries, still the same recipes!
