Old coaching inn from the 18th century

At the centre of the village, Lapoutroie, the old coaching inn from the eighteenth century is the home of the “‘Musee des Eaux de vie”. The distillation of brandies is a process a little bit magical, sometimes secret, which goes back to the Antiquity. It’s also a real passion for Monette and René de Miscault who gathered a unique collection in this museum: equipment from our own distillery (funded in 1859), stills, collections of “mignonettes”, unusual liqueurs, spoons for the absinth…

A museum patiently enriched through the years, since 1985… To discover in Lapoutroie, at the heart of the “Welche” region, a few kilometres from the “Route des Vins d’Alsace”.

Discover all the stages of the old-fashioned production of fruit brandies with period equipment.


At the end of the tour, we offer you a free tasting of our products: brandies, liqueurs and creams, bitters, gin, absinth Libertine, Morello cherries…
