I put my heart into my work, or rather my paw on the alembic, to distill your fruits in the noblest way possible.
But I also work hard so you can appreciate my precious brandies and visit my boar cave, where you are welcome to come individually or as a group.
In my house, in the boar’s cave, everything is possible, or nearly. You can even have food to complement your degustations. It’s on demand and personalized, just for you. To do that, contact me !
With food ? we’re doing it on your budget !
Just tasting ? It’s free !
It’s… my life ! The passion to pick and distil, it comes to me from the Jura tradition (finally, ajoulote, obviously).
And my dad. It’s with him, when I was a kid, that I surveyed orchards in search of the divine fruit…divine fruits from untreated trees, let’s be clear you guys!
No chemicals s**t in my orchard. Because for me, the health of wild boars and their natural habitat is priority.
In August 2016, while backpacking in South America and talking a bit about work, Tania, my lover, asked me this question:
Don’t you really want to earn your life with orchard fruits ?
The answer to this question, I knew it deep down inside me, but I really couldn’t put my paw on it. I was still stuck, with a fear in my stomach to leave my comfort zone and begin a professional activity that was dangerous but much more in line with who I am.
As we continued our journey towards Lake Titicaca, I couldn’t get Tania’s question out of my head, which inevitably reminded me of my dear father, who had left us. During this crossing of the lake, we met a Belgian man with whom we discussed at length about our respective life paths…
I suddenly had this revelation :
if I didn’t use this knowledge and my passion for distillation passed down from my father, I would only regret it !
These encounters and discussions were really nothing more than messages sent by my father ! My decision was then taken: I would take up the torch of my father, and I would make it my profession: Alembic.
He must be, I hope, proud.
