This is a phenomenal lychee liqueur. The lychee was first cultivated in Asia, and unofficial records refer to the Lychee in China as far back as 2000 BC!

This liqueur uses fruit from Litchi chinensis, a species of tropical tree native to China, Often known as the "cherry of China" which has a soft delicate flavour. 

On the nose, sherbet and fresh fruit with a hint of lychee. In the mouth, Lychee sweetness balanced by citric acidity, with hints of stewed red berry, green melon and grape soda.  The finish has strong authentic lychee with lingering acidity.

Just the ticket for exotic Martinis or oriental themed cocktails.

Maison Briottet is a family business, founded in 1836. Originally, the family were ageing, blending, bottling and selling wines. Following the development of the blanc cassis aperitif (white wine with Crème de Cassis), the company's activities evolved to producing fruit crèmes, liqueurs, brandies and marcs de Bourgogne.

The current managing director, Gérard Briottet, represents the fourth generation, and maintains the tradition started by his great grandfather, Edmond Briottet, of exclusively selling to the traditional sector of wine shops, delicatessens, hotels, bars and restaurants.

Maison Briottet maintains a very high level of quality. It is the selection of the ripest fruit from the most suitable cultivars that results in the finest flavours ; therefore contracting the right growers to produce the correct fruit is crucial. Subsequently, properly observed maceration with very pure neutral alcohol, and blending with the correct proportion of sugars to achieve the balance between fruit flavour, sweetness, acidity and alcohol create these excellent crèmes and liqueurs.
