Born in a family of distillers, G. E. Massenez continues the traditional art of distilling eaux de vie (fruit brandies) which is still particularly alive in the Villé region on Alsace. Since the distillation of high quality eaux de vie is not really consistent with today's industrialized practices, G. E. Massenez has chosen to retain traditional methods and to combine them with the requirements of modern production. Only the best fruit is selected and stored in large fermentation vats prior to distillation according to the rules of this age old art.
