Fruit de Cassis

A Fruit Rendez-vous
Two different varietals of cassis or blackcurrant make
Lejay’s original Crème de Cassis.

Noir de Bourgogne
is the most aromatic and rustic variety of blackcurrant.

Black Down
is a rounder, smoother and slightly sweeter variety.
both are harvested once a year
during summer in Burgundy and other northern regions in France.
Lejay uses a special technique for delicately harvesting cassis in small trays, in order to avoid any phenomenon of unwanted crushing or quick fermentation, which could affect the taste of the fruit.

About us

Company details

It was in 1841, in Dijon in the heart of Burgundy, that Auguste Denis Lagoute created the original Crème de Cassis. Henri Lejay, who married Elisabeth Lagoute, daughter of the founder, quickly made his mark in the family House. The Lejay and Lagoute families had sealed their destinies. Since then, generation to generation have joyfully paid homage to the nobility of the fruit.

The legacy of the house will forever be known as the world’s first Crème de Cassis.
