DISTILLERIE COMBIER'S CRAFTSMANSHIP
Legendary in the world of spirits, Distillerie Combier holds a special place in the story of French liqueurs. The historical distillery has maintained both the skills, such as hand zesting orange peel and the original alembic copper stills, with their long swan necks, which make its production methods unique. The iconic stills room is housed in a metallic structure designed by Gustave Eiffel‘s engineers. The range of 3.5 and 10 hectolitres stills allow for a precise distillation of even small quantities of prime ingredients. Cooling columns contribute to the quality of the condensates. Alcoholmeters combined with the trained eye of the master distiller guarantee the finest selection of the heart cut during the distillation process.
A RIGOROUS SELECTION OF RAW MATERIALS
Master distiller Franck Choisne follows the Combier family tradition in his careful choice of only the best raw materials: local rose petals, fennel from Provence, green anise from Spain, bitter oranges from Haiti… Orchards and fields near the distillery provide the essential fruits and plants for the flagship products: grand absinthe, local « guigne » cherries and wild peaches planted by the distillery. The entire team contributes to the harvesting of elderflower in the spring and rose petals in the summer. Today as yesterday, precision and skill have made the Combier distillery a treasure trove for bartenders and other professionals in the sphere of gastronomy. A touchstone, that continues to delight connoisseurs and to convert epicureans around the world.
