At the gates of the Val de Villé, in the foothills of the Alsatian Vosges, The Distiller House opens, a museum space dedicated to eaux de vie and whisky in France. A great first initiated by the Meyer Distillery, an independent family business, the most awarded in the region.
Between tradition and modernity, from stills to touch-screen terminals, the Distiller's House retraces the history of the distillers, famous in this region of Alsace for two centuries.
Above all, it introduces the visitor to this ancestral practice, so important in the daily life of the peasants of yesteryear. The local microclimate, the importance of orchards, the diversity of local fruits, distillation techniques, the "angels' share"... the areas of this unique museum clearly explain the characteristics of the profession and its deployment in the region through a particularly visual, didactic and ... fragrant tour!
Accompanied by the Wurzel elf, an emblematic figure of the Val de Villé, you will discover this typically French and Alsatian know-how. This know-how is constantly evolving, as shown by the last space devoted to the creation and success of Meyer's Alsatian whisky, the result of years of particularly fruitful research.
