The Merlet Family, winegrowers for ower two centuries, started up their first Still around 1850 to distill Eau de Vie de Cognac. More recently, while still producing for the Cognac Trade, Distillerie Merlet&Fils has successfully extended its activity into wines and liquors. Joining a local initiative in the 80 for a renaissance of wines from Saintonge, vineyards were planted an a modern vinery built.
Gilles Merlet also identified the potential of blackcurrant culture next to the wines. From these plantations came les Crèmes de Cassis de Saintonge, followed soon by Crème de Framboise, Poire, Mûre...
Enjoying a rare mastery in the fields of grape and fruit-growing combined with the liqueur making, Distillerie Merlet is well placed to develop new drinks which combine these worlds into new exciting RTD drinks based on premium raw materials and an excellent know how.
