Griottines Pereux

Griottines Pereux. Praised the world over, Griottines® are tasty wild sour cherries pitted and prepared in a liqueur whose unique recipe is jealously guarded.

Their presentation plays on the opposition of shapes with a spherical glass of total purity, offered in a perfect square case, without roughness, which, tinged with red, plays on transparencies.

A 200 HECTARE AREA DEDICATED TO GRIOTTINES®
The work of the distiller and the agriculturalist begins when the first wild cherries start to flower, from which point they will be monitored until the fruit has become fully ripe: irrigation determines the caliber of the fruit, and sunlight determines its fructose content.

Depending on these criteria, as well as the firmness of the fruit, Grandes Distilleries Peureux decides on the precise areas to be harvested and the quantities per area. The first challenge is the fact that Oblachinska sour cherries, which have a very particular flavor and form and are the only type used to make Griottines, only grow in the Balkans.

PICKING THE FRUIT
Over 500 million wild Morello cherries are picked by hand. Picking the fruit is done exclusively by hand, by specially trained staff, and the fruit must absolutely be harvested without the stem.

For thirty years, Grandes Distilleries Peureux has continuously developed and mastered the cultivation of these Morello cherries so that today, over 500 million of these little perfectly round, bright red rubies are harvested in just 3 weeks.
First of all, the morello cherries are taken to the collection center, which is located as close as possible to the harvesting site, where they are washed and sorted for the first time. The fruit is then graded to ensure that any which are not between 14 and 20mm in diameter are not kept. In 2006, 16,856 barrels were filled during the harvest.

FIRST MACERATION
Once on site, the cherries are then immersed in barrels of liqueur from Fougerolles for their first maceration. They must not be left for more than six hours to ensure that the flavor and the physical qualities of the fruit are not lost – these must absolutely be preserved throughout the entire development process.

The maceration barrels are sent to Fougerolles. During transport and throughout the resting stage that follows their arrival, the cherries slowly exchange flavors with the liqueur in the barrel by way of the natural phenomenon of osmosis.

STRINGENT TESTS
The Grandes Distilleries Peureux laboratories are a benchmark within the industry. Once the barrels arrive, each one is checked. Rigorous tests are carried out by sampling. They examine the fruit, their physical and organoleptic properties, as well as the quality of the first maceration.
