If you’re searching for a lip-smackingly good drink that elevates any occasion, say bonjour to Chambord. Produced in the Loire Valley in central France, this velvety liqueur – rich in notes of black raspberries, blackcurrants and Madagascan vanilla – is widely recognised for its distinctive flavour profile and regal-looking bottle.

The power of Chambord also lies in its ability to take any ol’ cocktail and transform it into something extraordinary. Whether it’s a Margarita or a Manhattan, add a splash of the purple liqueur and you’ve got a beverage like no other. It also lends itself to the latest mixology trends and seasonal drops – talk about versatility.

So whether you've got a romantic dinner, boozy brunch or cute picnic date coming up, there's never been a better time to crack open a bottle – because every moment becomes more magnifique with the addition of Chambord. And isn’t that what life’s all about? Celebrating at every opportunity? We sure think so. For some cocktail inspo, check out our three favourite Chambord recipes below – cheers!
