Distilleries et Domaines de Provence
For over 100 years, Distilleries et Domaines de Provence have been making Provençal liqueurs and aperitifs in Forcalquier in the Haute Provence region. Established in 1898, Distilleries et Domaines de Provence has inherited a tradition that goes back several millennia: collecting medicinal plants on Lure mountain, known for its wealth and abundance of plant species. The specialties they made from the Lure plants were often drinks or beverages with cleansing, tonic, digestive, aperitif or refreshing qualities.
Wine and alcohol, maceration and distillation, were all used to draw out and preserve the plants’ aromas and active substances. It was not until the end of the century that distillers began to specialize in the production of liqueurs and aperitifs. Today, Distilleries et Domaines de Provence has kept this expertise alive for more than a century and shared it with the rest of the world, much to the delight of spirit lovers everywhere. Certain emblematic brands have existed since the first days of the Distillery, and other have been created over the years to correspond to the evolution in tastes and drinking habits. Today their specialities are sold in over 78 countries all around the world.
