All starting back in 1841, when Auguste-Denis Lagoute, the first liqueur producer in Burgundy decided to create an innovative new recipe. This led to him create the first ever Créme de Cassis de Dijon. Since its creation, Lejay Lagoute has become a leader in the liqueur business. The Original is based on the 1841 recipe that the company was able to build its success off. Fresh and vibrant, this is also one of few cassis brands on the market to use the fragrant blackcurrant bud in its production.
Appearance: Vibrant Ribena.
Nose: Rich blackcurrant, lemon and floral notes.
Taste: Thick and syrupy, intensely blackcurrant.
Finish: Very long and intense.
Overall: This is extremely fresh and vibrant, like eating blackcurrants straight from the bush.
A must-have for any cocktail bar, whether you want to make a classic Kir Royal or a more contemporary creation.

ABOUT THE LIQUID
It all started in 1841 with Auguste-Denis Lagoute. The first liqueur-maker of Dijon, in the heart of Burgundy, was keen to invent an innovative recipe. This led him to develop the first-ever Créme de Cassis, with a smooth texture and powerful aromas. Married to Elisabeth Lagoute, daughter of the founder, his son-in-law Henri Lejay became a rising star in the business. Thanks to him, the reputation of their Créme de Cassis spread throughout France and beyond its borders. This was how an exceptional fruit, the blackcurrant, came to cement the foundations of a shared family history. Ever since, Lejay Lagoute has constantly sought innovation and quality. From one generation to the next, Lejay has continued to excel in its field, paying tribute to the greatness of this fruit and its incomparable aromas.
