Crafted with blackcurrants grown in the fields of our Herefordshire farm, this natural liqueur is rich and full bodied. Sweet at first taste, before the irresistibly sharp after-kick, British Cassis is the perfect aperitif served straight, over ice, twists beautifully into fizzing champagne or prosecco and is decadent in cocktails. Fraternise with British Cassis and kiss au revoir to French imitations.
Nestled in the rolling hills of verdant North Herefordshire, the Whittern Estate is an historic farm with a passion for contemporary decadence. The current guardian of the farm is Jo Hilditch, a bold supporter of the British Blackcurrant industry and of Herefordshire’s rich food producing community.
Under Jo’s stewardship, British Cassis has become an international hit in the luxury beverage market, gaining recognition and awards for its unique and exciting taste.
At White Heron we use a technique similar to winemaking in order to perfectly capture the intensity of freshly picked British blackcurrants. Once the blackcurrant juice has fermented naturally with champagne yeast, we blend it with a little vodka to fortify and add sugar to bring out the rich fruity flavour.
