Introducing Grandes Distilleries Peureux
Established in 1864 and based in Franche-Comté, les Grandes Distilleries Peureux have been producing the finest quality spirits and liqueurs for over 150 years.
From their 200 hectare wild cherry orchard, they produce their world-famous Griottines® using only the highest quality Morello cherries, and premium liqueurs.
Framboisines are whole raspberries steeped in liqueur and raspberry brandy, and are especially effective as décor for desserts or petit-fours. Drawing on their long experience and know-how, the manufacturers have succeeded in preserving the delicacy and firmness of the raspberry to create a 100% natural product with no colouring agents or preservatives.
Made using a very special type of Morello cherry, the Oblachinska cherry, found only in the Balkans, Griottines® are a world-renowned delicacy amongst chefs and artisan chocolatiers.
To conserve the unique flavour and physical characteristics of the fruit, the first maceration of cherries in liqueur takes place within six hours of picking. After rigorous sorting, grading and de-stoning, the Morello cherries are then steeped in different liqueurs for successive macerations, based on age-old know-how and secrets. The last maceration provides the final touch of Kirsch, which is the hallmark of Griottines®, or as an exciting alternative, Cointreau®.
Griottines® are available as whole de-stoned cherries, halves, chopped Griottines® or Griottines® Décor (semi-candied de-stoned cherries, with stalks) and are perfectly suited to a wide range of uses and occasions, such as Black Forest gateau, cherry trifle, or even in your favourite cocktail!
