The Distillerie de Lure was created in Forcalquier in 1898.
For nearly 80 years, it has had a succession of owners including Henri Bardouin, a man with a passion for plants.
In 1974, Alain Robert and a small team took over the compan, which was renamed Distilleries et Domaines de Provence.
Several of our emblematic brands have existed since the origin of the Distillery, such as Farigoule or Gentiane de Lure, while others have been developed over time taking into account the evolution of tastes and consumption patterns.
