CRÈME DE VIOLETTE

For well over a century, Creme de Violette liqueur has been an indispensable component to classic cocktails such as the Aviation and Blue Moon. This violet liqueur imparts a delicate floral nose and taste along with the stunning color of the flower.

The Rothman & Winter Creme de Violette is produced from a careful maceration of Queen Charlotte and March Violets in “Weinbrand” (this distilled from grapes), with cane sugar added for sweetness. Over its three generations, Destillerie Purkhart has produced this liqueur by special request of its regional gastronomy customers. In these local markets, it is often used in special cakes and chocolates.
