Cassis or cassis?

>> Wednesday, 7 January 2009


Cassis is a pretty fishing (well, before the tourist invasion) village on the French Riviera. Around the village they make a white wine AOC Cassis. It is also the French word for black currant liqueur, the one that makes Kir when blended with a white wine (preferably Bourgogne Aligote). The village and the wine is pronounced [kasi:'], without an ending 's', whereas the black currant syrup is pronounced [kasi's]. But even the French regularly makes mistakes with this.
