Two generations of the Clark family have grown berries in the Tassie soil and the chilly winters of the Derwent Valley ensure Richard Clark’s small redcurrant crop is full of goodness by the Christmas harvest. It’s with these very Tasmanian berries that Marionette brings back the classic French redcurrant liqueur, Groseille. Knowing they could rely on Richard’s top-notch crop, and inspired by a groseille syrup featured in the 1862 bar bible—Jerry Thomas’ Bartenders Guide, Marionette has crafted a vivid red liqueur that carries the sweet, tart characteristics of the redcurrant. This elusive ingredient will let you create Christmas in a glass, at any time of the year.
Marionette Groseille is packed with dense, ripe redcurrant notes on the nose, and fresh berry tartness with good concentration on the palate. Momentarily juicy and sweet in the middle, while maintaining a nice natural acidity through the finish.
Enjoy over ice, in a refreshing Pink G&T, or in a classic cocktail such as the Artist’s Special.
Marionette was created by four Melbourne hospitality professionals wanting to celebrate Australian produce and bring liqueurs back into the spotlight. They start with fresh fruit from good people and work hard to capture every last bit of flavour from the produce. Their focus is on creating the optimal building blocks for both classic and modern cocktails—a careful balancing act of sweetness, acidity, and alcohol intensity.
