Black Currant Liqueur Bottle


As with most of our liqueurs, there’s an authentic backstory with Black Currant before our founder Ute ever came to New York. In Europe, currants (both black and red) are commonly found in desserts, jams, syrups, and of course juices. Having grown up with currants being an everyday kind of fruit, Ute was surprised that currants are relatively unknown and underutilized in the US. Then one day she was introduced to the owner of Current C, Greg Quinn, and he explained how in 2003 he helped overturn the 100-year old ban on growing currants in the state. Ute's love of Black Currants was rekindled, and she spent the next 12 months perfecting the ideal technique to offer you a liqueur that brings out the incredible richness of this amazing fruit.
