Griottines® are made using a very special type of Morello cherry, the Oblachinska cherry found only in the Balkans. 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 a wonderfully harmonious alternative, Cointreau®.
Framboisines are whole raspberries and are especially effective as décor for desserts or petit-fours. They are steeped in liqueur and raspberry brandy. 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.
Also available are Cassis – Noir de Bourgogne blackcurrants in liqueur, and Griottines® Concentrate, a de-alcoholised infusion.
