Pop a trio of blackcurrants in a chilled champagne flute and add a generous dash of British Cassis. Then top with your favourite champagne or prosecco. An incredibly simple classic.
British Cassis is made from Jo Hilditch's blackcurrants from her farm in Herefordshire, only a few miles away from us at Saxtys Wines. We have some amazing produce in Herefordshire and this is no exception. This liqueur is made in a completely unique and artisan way, giving this fantastic British Cassis a truly intense blackcurrant flavour.

Sweet at first taste, before the irresistibly sharp after-kick, British Cassis is the perfect aperitif served straight, over ice, twists beautifully into fizzing champagne or prosecco and is decadent in cocktails. Fraternise with British Cassis and kiss au revoir to French imitations.

Presented in a beautiful branded Gift Box.

Country Of Origin: England
In the rolling fields of a Herefordshire farm, grows a tiny currant. Rarely seen and little known, this succulent fruit is harvested under the summer sun and carefully crafted into the very finest cassis.

At White Heron drinks, they carefully use a technique similar to winemaking in order to perfectly capture the intensity of freshly picked British blackcurrants. Once the blackcurrant juice has fermented naturally with champagne yeast, it is blended with a little vodka to fortify it and sugar is added to bring out the rich fruity flavour.

”As a fourth generation Herefordshire farmer, I believe in sustainability and the importance of knowing where our food and drink comes from. In many ways, life on Whittern Farm hasn’t changed that much in the 140 years my family has farmed it. In my youth, just as in my great-grandfather’s youth, summer days were punctuated by the blackcurrant harvest. Each year, we pick this delicious fruit from rows upon rows of vibrant green bushes. Over the decades, the currants have been made into jams, cordials and desserts. But, for me, nothing beats the incredibly special flavour achieved when we make cassis from them.

The name Whittern means white heron. These iconic birds (commonly known as great white egrets) used to breed at The Whittern. Nowadays, they are seen only infrequently. To me, they’re a symbol of the natural environment our blackcurrants are grown in so it felt fitting to name our company after these elegant, sophisticated characters.”
