Category: Raspberry (framboise) liqueurs
Product of: France
Lejay Lagoute use frozen raspberries from Spain and Serbia. Gravity filtration does not totally clarify this liqueur as the seeds don’t sink so a gentle particle filtration is also used. Lejay Crème de Framboise is balanced with 450 grams of sugar per litre.

Clear, light maroon red.
Aromatic fresh raspberry, very pure and clean with a green smell reminiscent of a greenhouse full of raspberry canes.
Slight fruit tartness counters rich fresh raspberry with slight raspberry jam cooked note. Superbly balanced fruit tartness and sugar.
Long jammy raspberry finish.
As crème de framboise liqueurs go this is about as good as they get, with a superb balance between fruit tartness and rich fruit flavour.
