Bourgogne IGP. This deep purple blackcurrant liqueur is particularly elegant and fruity, with a perfect balance between sugar, acidity and alcohol.
The blackcurrants are grown in the area of Merceuil, on the Côte de Beaune. Blackcurrant is a very dense bush, with fragrant leaves and black fruits topped with a little dried flower.
