AWARDED “ENTREPRISE DU PATRIMOINE VIVANT “BY THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT, THE LIQUORISTERIE DE PROVENCE REPRESENTS THE EXCELLENCE OF FRENCH SAVOIR-FAIRE
In the heart of Provence, near the Ste Victoire Mountain, The Liquoristerie de Provence has been awarded as a « destination entreprise » and welcomes you in a refined atmosphere for a visit of a verifiable alchemist of flavors and aromas. We perpetuate the traditional activity of liquoriste/distiller. Come and discover our alambics and maceration tanks that transform the plants of Provence into subtle elixirs.
The discovery of Versinthe absinthe, brought back to modern life by Pascal Rolland in 1999, after an 85-year ban is a highlight of the visit. Our alambics distill the essences of plants used in the creation of rare and precious perfumes such as Absolument Absinthe.
