You won't need two bites at the cherry with these delicious
morsels! New to the UK they make for a unique Christmas
present or speciality gift idea - Griottines - high
quality Morello cherries steeped in Kirsch or Cointreau,
for the ultimate in gourmet dining.
These ruby red gems are produced in France using a
special type of Morello cherry - the Oblachinska - found
only in the Balkans. Glacé cherries they are
not! To conserve the unique flavour and physical characteristics
of the fruit, the first maceration of the cherries in
liqueur takes place within six hours of picking. After
rigorous sorting, grading and de-stoning the Morello
cherries are steeped in different liqueurs for successive
macerations over a six month period based on a secret
recipe and age-old traditions. The last maceration provides
the final touch of Kirsch, which is the hallmark of
Griottines, or Cointreau for a discerning alternative.
The Kirsch or Cointreau infused Griottines and their
liqueur have a 15% alcohol content.
Griottines are suitable for a wide range of sweet or
savoury recipes and make stunning additions to cocktails.
A new recipe booklet containing 13 recipe ideas and
serving suggestions comes free with every purchase.

smoked fish, ham, duck or melon with Griottines to name
but a few ideas. Griottines are also delicious eaten
simply on their own, or with ice cream for a quick and
simple, yet impressive gastronomic dessert.
They make ideal gifts for friends and family and come
