After ten years running her family’s blackcurrant farm in Herefordshire, Jo Hilditch decided to create what is the original British Cassis. Jo is also a founding member of The Blackcurrant Foundation.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 10/02/2013

Appearance

Clear (although so dark virtually opaque, deep mulberry red.

Aroma

Pungent blackcurrant fruit with faint green leaf note.

Taste

Lacks the syrupy sugar associated with crème de cassis so is comparatively thin but retains intense blackberry fruit with red wine-like tannins and complexity. Superbly clean.

Aftertaste

Lingering fruit tartness. Can’t help but think it would be better sweetened with indulgent amounts of sugar.
