Guignolet is a French wild cherry liqueur.
Guignolet is a cherry liqueur made with kirsch, red wine, and sugar is an easy preserve that captures the cherry season long after it’s gone.
A leading producer is the company Giffard in Angers, France, the same town where Cointreau is produced. The Cointreau brothers were instrumental in its reinvention, the original recipe having been lost.
Guignolet Kirsch is created by macerating cherries and Morello cherries in a fine, Kirsch-based liqueur (Guignolet without Kirsch). The color and flavor depends on the variety of fruit selected and used.
