Joseph Cartron

Origin France, Crème de Fruits
ABV 18%

Joseph Cartron has carefully selected for this liqueur the Lloyd George and Rose de Plombières Burgundy varieties of raspberries, for their delicate and genuine taste. These grow in the Hautes Côtes de Bourgogne - a guarantee of quality. The vats are loaded with fruit up to 2/3 of their volume, and then topped up with pure alcohol. The maceration is carried out at room temperature and lasts 4 to 5 weeks. At this stage, the resulting infusion, a blend of spirit and juice, is tasted before being carefully decanted. Then, crystallised sugar is slowly added. This addition naturally lowers the alcohol content and develops the flavour of the fruit. L&S (Jun 2009)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
