Domaine Lucien Jacob originally specialized in growing cassis and framboise, but soon expanded their land to include vineyards. Today, they are known for producing many quality wines, but still release their traditional fruit liqueurs.
Crème de Cassis is a blood-red, sweet, black currant-flavored liqueur. It dates back to the 16th century, first produced by monks in France as a cure for snakebites, jaundice, and wretchedness. This cordial works well in pousse-cafés and some cocktails, but is most commonly mixed with just vermouth, white wine, or soda water.
