Dijon, France-based liqueur producer Lejay Lagoute has produced a ready-mixed Kir Royal, which is a blend of French sparkling wine and macerated blackcurrants. No colouring or water is added.

Kir is said to have been created by Canon Kir, the mayor of Dijon after World War II, who gave Lejay Lagoute permission to use his name to promote its crème de cassis.
