Blackcurrant

Blackcurrant

Blackcurrant is a berry grown on a shrub, the blackcurrant bush. Its leaves are as fragrant as its fruit, black with purple tints when they reach full maturity. Kir, a cocktail made with dry white wine and crème de cassis, is made from blackcurrant and takes its name from Canon Kir, who was particularly fond of this drink.
