Auguste PEUREUX founded his distillery in 1864 in Fougerolles at the foot of the Vosges mountains in Lorraine. The distillery specialised in the production of fruit brandies, including the famous Fougerolles kirsch, and before long these eaux-de-vie had acquired a widespread reputation, their excellence being recognised at the 1900 World Fair in Paris. Since then Peureux has become the major fruit Eaux de Vie distiller of France for its own products and on behalf of many over brands. They are also famous for their Griottines, confit sour cherries in kirsch.
