The blackcurrant berry features a sweet lightly bitter taste and a dark colour. It is traditionally used in jams, juices, cordials, ice creams and syrups. Félix Kir appointed mayor of Dijon, France, from 1945 to 1967, gave to this delicious flavour its letters of nobility. He popularized the famous drink called “Kir”, made of white wine and “crème de cassis” or blackcurrant liqueur”, by offering it at” receptions to visiting delegations. Flavour countless beverages with the natural berry taste of MONIN Blackcurrant liqueur!
