Founded in 1836 as a wine merchant, Briottet became known for making creme de cassis de Dijon, which now makes up a large percentage of their sales. Today, Gerard Briottet makes a large range of liqueurs, including flavors such as strawberry, fig, quince, griotte cherry, bergamot orange, chestnut, and rose.
The entire Briottet line is of high quality, with pure flavors and a good level of complexity without being overly sweet.
