Blackcurrants are one of the most vitamin C-rich fruits. They support the immune system. They contain ingredients that strengthen the gums, soothe sore throats and protect the voice.
The thorn-free blackcurrant bush is a wild plant that grows approx. 1 to 2m high in moist shrubberies and lowland forests, and is also cultivated in gardens. The ripe berries are harvested from July to August in Central Europe. Blackcurrants are often made into jams, jellies and juices, and are used as a fruity fragrance in the perfume industry. The intense-tasting berry is available as a liquor or syrup under the French name cassis.
Only sun-ripened fruits are used in Grether’s Pastilles. The fruits are only harvested when they have fully developed their intensive aroma and soothing effect. The berries are then carefully hand-picked and processed with care and expertise.
