Welcome to the Distiller’s house
At the gates of the Val de Villé, in the piedmont of the Alsatian Vosges, opens La Maison du Distillateur, « The Distiller’s House », a museum dedicated to eaux-de-vie and Alsatian whisky.
A great first initiated by the Meyer Distillery, a family-owned and independent company, the most award-winning in the region. Between tradition and modernity, from stills to tactile terminals, La Maison du Distillateur retraces the history of the home distillers, famous in this corner of Alsace for two centuries.
Why a Maison des Eaux-de-vie and Whisky in Alsace ?
It is from the desire to share a family tradition that the idea of opening a museum dedicated to distillation and whisky emerged. Lionel and Arnaud Meyer are inspired by the experience and know-how of their ancestors in order to transmit to the general public their passion for distillation.
Much more than an exhibition of distillation techniques, the museum pays tribute to the Val de Villé, the historic birthplace of eaux-de-vie in Alsace, the Alsatian gastronomy and the roots of the Meyer distillery, Most awarded distillery in France at the Concours Agricole de Paris since 1989.
