Cassissée, better known as Crème de Cassis, comes from the area around Dijon in Burgundy, France.
There, Félix Kir, former mayor of the city, made the combination of black currant liqueur and white wine the official beverage of the area. Replacing the white wine with champagne, the result is a drink for which Crème de Cassis is almost symbolic: Kir Royal.
Their Cassis is neither made in France nor are we following conventional manufacturing processes. We reinterpret the traditional method.
According to the EU Spirits Regulation, Crème de Cassis must have a sugar content of at least 400 grams of sugar per liter. For the CASSIS 775, the sugar content has been reduced by half to balance the ratio of acidity and sweetness. As with most products of the Freimeisterkollektiv many ingredients come from a single source.
The Mozer family in the district of Hohenlohe in Baden-Wuerttemberg cultivates the blackcurrants themselves and processes them on their own farm.
