Gilbert Miclo - Distiller
Located in a valley where the tradition of distillation is deeply rooted, the Miclo distillery is a family business created in 1962.
Michel Miclo, Gilbert's son, has inherited the distillation methods that enable the production of eaux de vie with exceptional aromatic power. The systematic search for the best fruit suppliers in the main orchards of France ensures not only the regularity of supplies but also the consistency of quality. This quality, which is the object of all our care, has regularly been recognised at the CGA in Paris and allows us to be present on the menu of many starred restaurants and in the selections of the best wine merchants.
As a fruit distiller and liqueur maker, as is traditional in Alsace, we have been able to expand our range of spirits by successfully launching into the production of Alsatian whisky and gin, which are now recognised by connoisseurs for their quality and originality.
We are one of the most important places to visit in the Alsatian culture and gastronomy, and more specifically in our beautiful welche country. We will be happy to welcome you and show you our stills, our cellars and some of our production secrets along a route rich in meaning. During the visit, you will be shown an 8-minute film detailing the history of the distillery and the different stages in the production of eaux de vie and whiskies. From May to September, you can walk through the educational garden where fruits and berries identical to those used for distillation grow. At the end of the visit, you will be able to taste freely and discover typical products such as L'Amer bière, wild alisier eau de vie or savour all the sensuality of our whiskies
You will find all our spirits as well as a selection of Alsace wines, craft beers and regional products in our shop.
All year round, we offer guided tours, workshops (introduction to whisky tasting, food/spirit pairing...) and tastings.
