Marie Brizard Cacao Brun Liqueur (700ml)

Bordeaux, FRANCE
$39.99 Bottle
  • ABV 25%

Crème de Cacao or chocolate liqueur is manufactured by maceration or percolation of cacao (cocoa) beans followed by distillation and sweetening. As with coffee, the best results are obtained by blending beans from different areas. It is available as either a colourless or brown liquid, the brown version often containing vanilla. The history of cocoa and chocolate is well known to date back to the Aztecs of South America. The ‘plumed serpent’ is said to have bought it back from the ‘Lost Paradise.’ By consuming it one attained universal knowledge and wisdom. It came into vogue in Europe as a liqueur from the seventeenth century on, often being drunk through a thick layer of cream floating on the surface.

Marie Brizard has been developing fruit liqueurs rich in tastes and colours since 1755. The selection of quality fruits and plants and the creation of exclusive recipes have allowed the production of a balanced range of liqueurs. Marie Brizard has selected the best cocoa beans, those that are redolent of powerful African landscapes. Distilled and then infused with the best vanilla, this unctuous and flavoursome cream will be invaluable when making successful cocktails. 25% Alc./Vol.
