The particularity of this blackcurrant selected by Maison Ponthier is its Burgundy origins. In this region there is a genuine tradition in farming the most aromatic blackcurrant varieties. In Burgundy there is a Route du Cassis (the Blackcurrant Route) which weaves through the high hills, passing fields of blackcurrants and craft stores. After bathing in the generous June sunshine, the little black berries are harvested at perfect ripeness to guarantee the highest quality. These Burgundy blackcurrants stand out with their smooth and shiny skin, from deep blue to liquorice black, and their particularly juicy and tangy flesh.
