Marie Brizard Elderflower liqueur is a blend of sweetened aroma and flavor of the elderflower. It presents in a light yellow/amber color. The Marie Brizard Company was founded in France in 1755 in the Bordeaux wine region. It was founded upon an anise flavored (black licorice) liqueur and then spread into other spirits. They claim the distillation of fruit liqueurs going over 200 years to their founding in 1775 and insist upon high quality fruits and venerated recipes. Their products are traditionally macerated--which means soaking the grain alcohol in fruit to absorb its flavor. Today, they operate six production facilities across France. In 2005, Marie Brizard combined with William Pitters, which added a line of whiskeys to the company. Soon after in 2006, the company was acquired by Belvedere, itself a subsidiary of Angostura.
