The morello cherries, called Griottines in French, are made by the Grandes Distilleries Peureux in Fougerolles, in France. This distillery has over 150 years of experience in the production of spirits and is renowned for their liqueurs, eau-de-vie and Peureux Absinthe.

In order to produce the Griottines, freshly harvested cherries are pitted and then drowned in cherry liqueur, that is made according to a secret recipe.

Griottines are a perfect cocktail garnish and they go well with desserts, e.g. vanilla ice cream or crêpe, or with tapas.

Our recipe tip for your aperitif: Cut a honeydew melon into pieces and put them on skewers, together with smoked ham and griottines.

Lemercier, France


The Lemercier family used to run a farm and distill Kirsch and Plum Brandy for mostly their own use, but for other people from around Fougerolles as well. After noticing the rising demand for their spirits, the family decided to found their own distillery in 1811. Nicolas started distilling absinthe around the same time, however, he had to stop during 1915 due to the worldwide ban of absinthe.


After finishing his business studies, Alain Aureggio, Desle'S grand-grandson, decided to take up the family business.

Lemercier's absinthes and liquors :

Their probably most popular absinthe is the Absinthe Abisinthe – available in a 72°, 72° Amer and a 45° version. These are classed as the ideal absinthe for people discovering this drink. Some more absinthes in the Lemercier product range are the Absinthe Coeur d'Absinthe double and triple distillation – two significant blanches! Furthermore, Lemercier distills several eau-de-vies and the Green Demon Absinthe.
