Category: Blackcurrant (crème de cassis) liqueurs
Product of: United Kingdom
Chase could call their blackcurrant liqueur ‘cassis’ but due to adding a minimal amount of sugar cannot call the product ‘crème de cassis’. European regulation dictate that a crème de cassis must have 400g sugar per litre but Chase preferred their flavour profile with just 320g/l sugar.

Clear, deep burgundy red.
Slight hint of spent shotgun cartridge to the rich, blackcurrant nose.
Rich but not overly sweet palate with natural-tasting blast of raspberry fruit.
Rich fruit continues through the finish which is perhaps shorter than some crèmes de cassis, due to having less sugar – surely a good thing?
Closure: Natural cork stopper
