Crème de mûre is a blackberry flavored crème liqueur. Crème liqueurs (not to be confused with cream liqueurs, made from a base spirit, flavorings and cream) have such a high sugar content that they have the texture of cream.
There are many flavors of crème liqueurs, but all of them are very sweet and low in alcohol, around 30 proof. Briottet, Massenez and Lucien Jacob are all high quality brands of crème de mûre.
