Creme de violette base

Does anyone know if the base used for Rothman and Winter creme de violette is brandy or neutral? I have some friends who keep Kosher and won't drink it if there is brandy (because of the wine). Thanks!

      Thanks! Do you know of any creme de violette not made from grapes?

        Creme Yvette is made with berries and violets.

          Thank you for the response. Some people have told me that it may also be made with grapes (I also have something called Creme Yvette). Are either of these ok?

            You will have to figure that out for yourself. You could contact the manufacturer.
