Giffard Crème de Framboise (Raspberry) Liqueur
Liqueur – 70cl
It all began during the very hot summer of 1885…
At that time, Émile Giffard was a dispensing chemist living in Angers (Val de Loire).
He had an inventive, inquiring mind, and was a gourmet as well. He took an interest in the digestive and refreshing properties of mint, and ended up concocting a pure, clear and refined white mint liqueur which he promptly put to the test by offering the guests at the Grand Hotel a sip of his cordial as a relief against the heat wave.
Having found instant success, Émile turned his pharmacy into a distillery and named his liqueur Menthe-Pastille , in reference to the tiny mint sweets that were all the rage in those days.
Five generations later, the family business still bears the GIFFARD name and is proud to uphold the high standards of quality instilled by its original creator.
Crème de Framboise (Raspberry) – Liqueur (crème de fruits) made from raspberry infusion.
Tasting Notes – Deep red colour with orange and amber shades.
Nose slightly spicy and characteristic of the fruit. Powerful aromas that can recall other red fruits such as blackcurrant and gooseberry.
Bright and dynamic attack in mouth. Slight and very pleasant peppery side.
Very fruity mouth with blackberries, blackcurrants and other small acidulous red fruits notes. Long and aromatic finish, very faithful to the aromas of the berry.
