What Is Chambord?

Chambord is a black raspberry liqueur from the Loire Valley region in France that was developed in 1982. It’s a cognac-based liqueur, but it’s only 16.5% ABV so it’s fairly light in alcohol content!

Chambord is by far the most popular black raspberry liqueur on the market, and you can always spot it thanks to its iconic spherical bottle that’s modeled after an orb and cross (aka a globus cruciger — I’ll give $5 to whoever can pronounce this correctly 😂).

As for price, you can expect Chambord to cost you $20-$23 for a 350ml bottle or $35-$38 for a 750ml bottle.

While Chambord is a modern liqueur, the recipe is actually based on a French raspberry liqueur recipe from all the way back in the 1680s! So it’s a fun mix of tradition and innovation, and it contains the following ingredients:

  • Berries (raspberries, blackberries, & blackcurrants)
  • Cognac
  • Madagascan vanilla
  • Moroccan citrus peel
  • Honey
  • Warm spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, & cloves)

What Does Chambord Taste Like?

Chambord pours a vibrant, clear burgundy color and immediately hits you with aromas of raspberry, blackcurrant, and vanilla. On the palate, it has a velvety texture and strong flavors of sweet berries, warm honey, spiced vanilla, and citrus. So it’s truly a perfect balance between sweet, tart, rich, and fruity!

What to Mix With Chambord

Chambord is delicious on its own, but it’s also a super versatile mixer that’s used in a wide range of cocktails. The following are some popular mixers to use with Chambord, but it’s by no means an exhaustive list!

  • Sparkling wine
  • Club soda
  • Citrus juice
  • Pineapple juice
  • Lemonade
  • Berry juice
  • Grape juice
  • Muddled berries
  • Peanut butter whiskey

Keep in mind that for the most part these mixers shouldn’t be used alone with Chambord, but rather are flavors that work well with the liqueur in cocktails.
