Category: Cherry (cerise) liqueurs
Product of: France
Made by steeping French cherries in beet neutral alcohol for six to eight weeks. Clarification is only by gravity allowing partials to fall to the bottom of the tank, thus avoiding harsh particle filtration which might also strip delicate flavours and rich colour pigments.

Clear, dark burgundy red.
Pungent cherry fruit, black forest gateaux and dark chocolate with aromatic almond/marzipan.
Rich yet tart cherry with sweet boiled cherry sweets and cherry jam. Some almondy cherry stone nuttiness. The sugar does not quite balance fruit tartness leaving some cleansing acidity.
Lingering jammy cherry and acidity with almond and peppery spice. A tad tart.
