The Texture of Royale Delux

Blue Royale Delux

Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur is inspired by a raspberry liqueur produced in the Loire Valley of France during the late 17th century. The liqueur was said to have been introduced to Louis XIV during one of his visits to the Château de Chambord. It was common during that time for liqueurs and cognac to be consumed with elegant meals.

Chambord is made from raspberries, blackberries, Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, honey and cognac to create an all-natural Black Raspberry liqueur.

Chambord is made on the premises of a traditional Loire Valley Chateau, using all-natural ingredients. Whole raspberries and blackberries are steeped in French spirits for a period of several weeks to achieve a rich fruit infusion. This infusion process produces a distinct natural raspberry flavor and aroma.

After the infusion is extracted, a second layer of spirits is added to the fruit and allowed to rest for a few weeks. After this second infusion is drawn off, the remaining fruit is pressed to obtain the natural sugars and juice. The fruit-infused spirits and juices from the final pressing are then combined, and finally, the berry infusion is married with a proprietary blend of cognac, and natural vanilla extract, black raspberries, citrus peel, honey, and herbs and spices. The liqueur is 16.5% alcohol by volume.

Chambord comes in a spherical bottle. Through mid-2010, the bottle came with a metallic gold plastic lettered ‘belt’ around the middle, and a crown atop its lid. The bottle was modeled after a Globus cruciger, which reflects Chambord’s royal connection. A redesigned bottle debuted in the U.S. market in summer 2010, with modifications to the belt, lid and other elements to appeal to a contemporary audience. The redesign to the liqueur bottle was further complemented by Chambord’s first product extension: a flavored vodka. 1

Common drinks made from Chambord include the Raspberry Margarita, French Manhattan, Kir Imperial (Chambord and Champagne), Chambord Daiquiri, Chambord Royal Spritzer, Little Purple Men, The Purple Hooter Shooter, Sour Grapes, Black Opal, Peanut Butter and Jelly (w/ Frangelico or Castries Peanut Cream), Grape Crush, French Martini which started the ‘cocktails as a Martini’ craze, the “Blood of Christ”.

Some sources[who?] recommend that opened bottles be kept refrigerated, and may then have a shelf-life of but a few months.
