The blackcurrants used for Jahiot’s Blackcurrant Liqueur are grown exclusively on the estate. This way, the fruits can be picked when ideally ripe and quickly taken to the cellars where they will macerate in the finest alcohol, following a strict process to obtain the most appreciated flavors and aromas of freshly picked berries of Jahiot’s Blackcurrant Liqueur.
The fruits have a strong aromatic quality and are highly concentrated. This traditional method of production gives to Jahiot’s Blackcurrant Liqueur all the flavors of old traditional blackcurrant.
5 stars! "Opaque, deep purple color. Initial whiffs detect wonderfully complex, astringent and überberry fragrances that are concentrated and delicate... Entry is tangy, deeply sweet, jammy and complex. WOW." (Paul Pacult, The New Kindred Spirits 2021)
90 points, Excellent / Highly Recommended
"Tart and almost savory berry flavors are pungent in the glass. In the mouth there is a significant hit of savoriness as well, helping to balance out the bright sweetness of concentrated currants and other black berry flavors."

Jahiot’s Raspberry Liqueur is made from a very aromatic type of raspberry picked at the peak of maturity, delicately macerated in the finest alcohol and sugar. The fruits require great care and attention during the maceration process to preserve and reveal the raspberries' most subtle perfumes.
It may be served pure, with ice or as a cocktail, with white wine or Champagne. It also offers many cooking possibilities. For a unique dessert alternative try it with ice cream, sorbet or a fruit salad.
93 points. "Overall, this raspberry liqueur is rich and viscous, redolent with dark, ripe black cherry and blackberry compote—there's even a fortified wine note reminiscent of Manischewitz. The finish is long and clings to the palate, yet offers just enough mouthwatering tartness to keep things interesting. Dessert-worthy." Wine Enthusiast, 2017

4 stars, Highly Recommended “First nosing passes discover a tangy aroma of peach peel that is almost more floral than fruity, but whatever the case it’s appealing and fresh, not in the least sugary sweet; later sniffs following more time in the glass heighten the peachy element now in the form of pulp rather than peel. Entry is pleasantly sweet but neither cloying nor unctuous as the acidity level remains high enough to keep the structure from collapsing in on itself; midpalate mirrors the entry, but the peach ripeness becomes more dense and weighty on the tongue. Concludes long, intensely peach-like but not too sweet, as once again the inherent acidity keeps the sweetness from dominating.” (Paul Pacult, The New Kindred Spirits 2021)
