Mathilde Framboise Raspberry Liqueur
Three varieties of raspberry are used to make Mathilde
Framboise. The first, called Lloyd George, originates in Scotland and is
particularly well known for its berry fruits. The other two berries, both from
Burgundy, are the Rose de Plombières and the Violette de Boux.
The berries are pressed into a puree and are then added
to the alcohol base for maceration. The Lloyd George raspberries are used
primarily for their bright color, while the intense aromatics mainly come from
the berries from Burgundy. We find that this blend of the three varieties
produces an exquisite complexity.
Mathilde fruit liqueurs are handcrafted French spirits
produced from our cherished forefathers’ recipes. Today, Maison Ferrand
painstakingly oversees the production of Mathilde liqueurs and strives to
transmit its ancestral savoir-faire, year after year. The farmers who grow
the fruits for Mathilde are guided by traditional farming techniques and
harvest only the freshest fruits at their peak ripeness to ensure we capture
the most palatable flavors.
The result is a fancy liqueur from France, wonderfully
adaptable for mixing in cocktails, using in baking and cooking like our
grandmothers did, drizzling on fruits and desserts, mixing with soda water and
so many more variations.
