Distillerie Frigolet liqueur

Châteaurenard - Craftsman / producer

Tasting and sales.

The production of the Frigolet liqueur.began in Châteaurenard in 1865. Father Gaucher, a famous character from the stories of Alphonse Daudet, had developed a 'green, golden, hot, sparkling, exquisite' liqueur (extract from Letters From My Windmill). This divine drink has been made here ever since, in this distillery, in the heart of Provence. Thirty plants form the secret of the liqueur's production. Once the plants have been harvested, dried, sorted and laid out carefully, they are macerated in neutral spirits. After first being placed in an oak barrel, the liqueur is completed by adding sugar and honey. As for the rest, Father Gaucher would not forgive us if we betrayed his secret.
