Chambord Liqueur Royale de France
First introduced in 1982, Chambord was inspired by a raspberry liqueur produced for King Louis XIV during his visit to Château de Chambord in the 17th century.
Chambord is produced on the premises of a traditional Loire Valley chateau, using all natural ingredients. Chambord is made from red and black raspberries, Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, honey and cognac. Whole raspberries and blackberries are steeped in French spirits for a period of several weeks to produce a fruit infusion. This infusion produces a distinct raspberry flavour and aroma.
After the infusion is extracted, a second set of spirits is added to the fruit and allowed to rest for a few weeks. After this second infusion is drawn off, the remaining fruit is pressed to obtain the natural sugars and juice. The fruit-infused spirits and juices from the final pressing are then combined, and finally, the berry infusion is married with a proprietary blend of cognac, natural vanilla extract, black raspberries, citrus peel, honey, and herbs and spices.
With it's beautiful spherical bottle that looks good on any shelf, Chambord is often added to cocktails, long drinks based with a sparkling wine or used in mixers.Read More
