Episode 36 features Chambord. The top-shelf black raspberry liqueur from the Loire Valley in France. Always sold in an ornate bottle, the 750ml size retails for $32. It's a light 16.5% ABV, or 33 proof.
Enjoy this episode with a Chambord Royale - simply Chambord and Champagne!
Chambord's official website is a bit disappointing, but here it is: https://www.chambordchannel.com/
