Cédratine is an after-dinner liqueur made from citrons. It is usually served in stem glasses.
It is made from sugar syrup, and citron extracts. Some versions also contain E102 colouring, a yellow food dye.
Cédrat is sometimes mistakenly translated in English as meaning "cedar." In fact, it means "Citron." Specifically, it is Buddha's Hands citrons that are used.
25 to 28% alcohol by volume.
In 1872, Louis Napoleon Mattei (1849 to 1907) formed a spirts company in Bastia, Corsica to make Cédratine commercially. His company, called Mattei, also created Mandarine Impériale and Cap Corse liqueurs.
