Guignolet is a French wild cherry liqueur.
It is widely available in France, including at supermarkets such as Casino and others, but is not widely available internationally.
A leading producer is the company Giffard in Angers, France, the same town where Cointreau is produced. The Cointreau brothers have been instrumental in its reinvention, the original recipe having been lost.
