The heir to a wine house, our establishment was created in 1836. In the 1900s, faced with the growing popularity of the “blanc-cassis” aperitif, Edmond Briottet gradually abandoned the wine trade to focus on making Crème de Cassis. Since then, generations of Briottets have followed one another and the range of liqueurs has been expanded by around sixty liqueurs
Briottet Creme De Chataigne (Chestnut)
Made from a maceration of Ardèche PDO chestnuts, our chestnut liqueur perfectly restores the flavors of this treasure of the “Ardèche” terroir (south east of France).
Why is chestnut under PDO (Protected Designation of Origin)?
It is PDO thanks to its characteristics and taste, due exclusively to its terroir and the human and ancestral know-how of its region. The flavor of the chestnut we use has a strong link with its geographical origin. Thank you “Ardéchois” people!
As liquorists, our job is to carefully select the best product, the best fruit. This, and then sublimate it in our liqueurs. No question of distorting the subtle taste of the chestnut! We therefore use the heart of the chestnut, to bring out to the maximum the autumn and gourmet notes, characteristics of this fruit.
In addition, our liqueur will bring to your kitchen a touch of originality and warmth, both for your sweet and savoury recipes.
It will also be perfect as a cocktail to awaken your taste buds!
