L'Atelier du Bouilleur
Bouilleur Fine de Faugeres 5-11 years. After a minimum of 5 years of maturation (this edition:13 years) in an oak barrel, distilled wine becomes the brandy of protected designation of origin, “La Fine Faugères”. Once famed as “France’s third brandy”, production had ceased some decades ago until it was resumed at the beginning of the new millennium. Today we are the only distillery producing this Fine for the winemakers of Faugères. Each year we chose one of their wines to make our own vintage barrel. Grape variety (Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Cinsault), the schist terroir, distillation and the choice of the barrel are the elements that together create the characteristic notes of fruit, salt and a hint of tobacco leaves in the Fine Faugères. Its uniqueness lies in the velvety softness and length of its taste. Enjoy it with sweet dishes like Crêpes or almond cake, but it also accompanies perfectly a good stong black coffee – or the finish of your day.
A craft distillery, located in the south of France, L’Atelier du Bouilleur is certified organic and organised as a cooperative. Distilling on demand for professionals and amateurs, as well as create our own spirits, like Gin, Verveine and Fine Faugères. The south of France – everybody’s dream: the sun, the flavours, good food and wine, tranquillity and the good life... a good summary of what we fill into our bottles and present to you here, the spirit of southern France, in the direct sense of the word. All our spirits are handmade in local, collective and vegan production and are organic or natural.
