Frigolet Liquer, the Elixir of the Reverend Father Gaucher
FRIGOLET DISTILLERY, Producer of Frgolet liqueur, the Elixir of the Reverend Father Gaucher, since 1865.
A unique recipe preserved for more than 100 years, composed of more than 30 plants mainly from Provence, as well as honey syrup from Provence.
Only three stills have been used from the beginning to makeFrigolet, since the end of 1800, and only three distillers have successively used these stills, Joseph Isoard, Roland Inisan and François Inisan.
This continuity is the guarantee of respect for the original recipe and ensures its authenticity.
Alphonse Daudet, a famous Provençal author, told the story of the Frigolet Elixir in the Count “The Elixir of the Reverend Father Gaucher”
