Their multi-awarded Blackcurrant Cream enters in the making of the famous Kir cocktail – a combination of white Burgundy wine with creme de cassis – or its luxurious counterpart the Royal Kir in which Champagne complements the fruit liqueurs.
Fruits’ maceration is not the only secret recipe Gabriel Boudier possessed. A Gin formula, dating back to the time Pondichery or Chandernagor where French colonies, was part of the founder’s archives.
