Proof66 Notes

Merlet Creme de Cassis comes from black currants first planted in 1970 and became the first of a range of cordials offered by company. Their website mentions that the black currants perform best when the plant is stressed--particularly the noir de bourgogne variety that is the base for this liqueur; consequently, it is planted on poor ground with no irrigation.

A fabulous mixer with an intense, sweet currant flavor, but not overpowering.  I didn't expect to like this too much, but it's the best mixing liqueur I've found next to St. Germain.  I've had this with bourbon and lemon juice, tequila and lemon juice and several other combinations with vodka and gin.  The tart of the lemon juice complements the sweetness of this liqueur very well (lime doesn't work as well). If you can find this (I had a friend pick it up in Paris), it's well worth a try.  I've got to figure out how to get my next bottle!
