Briottet Crème de Figue (Fig) 70cl: A Taste of the Mediterranean in Every Sip

Indulge in the exquisite taste of ripe figs with Briottet Crème de Figue, a delightful French liqueur crafted by Maison Briottet. This family-run producer, established in 1836, is renowned for its high-quality fruit liqueurs, and Briottet Crème de Figue is no exception.

A Nuanced Fig Experience:

Unlike many fig liqueurs that rely on artificial flavourings, Briottet's expression uses real fig juice, creating a pure and authentic representation of the fruit. Upon pouring, the liqueur boasts a beautiful golden hue, hinting at the sunshine-ripened figs used in its production.

On the Nose:

The first inhale brings forth a captivating aroma. Rich, jammy fig notes take centre stage, reminiscent of freshly picked figs bursting with sweetness. Hints of honeyed warmth and subtle floral impressions add complexity, creating a truly inviting bouquet.

On the Palate:

The first sip of Briottet Crème de Figue is a revelation. The luxurious texture coats the tongue with a velvety smoothness. The flavour profile mirrors the nose, with an explosion of ripe fig character. The sweetness is balanced by a touch of natural acidity, leaving a refreshingly clean finish. Underlying notes of honey and spice emerge as the flavours develop, showcasing the depth and complexity of this liqueur.

Serving Suggestions:

Briottet Crème de Figue shines in a variety of ways. Enjoy it neat as a digestif after a meal. The sweetness and smooth texture make it a perfect way to cap off a delightful dining experience.

For a refreshing twist, serve it chilled over ice. This format accentuates the vibrant fig character and makes for a light and enjoyable summer drink.

Briottet Crème de Figue also excels in cocktails. Add a touch of sophistication to your next gathering with these recipe ideas:
