This reduced sugar version of Lejay’s 20% alc./vol. crème de cassis was developed in 2013 specifically for the U.S. market. Made using traditional Noir de Bourgogne (55%) and Black Down (45%) varieties of blackcurrant, it contains 450 grams of sugar per litre.

Clear, deep (almost opaque) maroon red.


Very intense ripe blackberry fruit and blackberry jam. A small amount of water is added to the blend to bring the strength down to 18% alc./vol. and this dilution appears to open up and so intensify the nose.


Rich and fruit driven with blackcurrant flavours exploding in the mouth. Very slightly sharp with the intensity of the fruit not quite balanced by the sugar.


Long, tongue coating tart jammy bramble fruit.

Συνολική αίσθηση:

“Lejay Crème de Cassis de Dijon has a little less sugar and a small amount of added water, so making it less rich and syrupy with more intense tartness and a more open expressive aroma. It is perfectly suited to cocktails.”
