The boutique distillery at Tanagra offers a range of Marc (what the Italians call 'Grappa' and the German call 'Tresterbrand') and Eau de Vie, produced in very exclusive and limited quantities.

When relocating from Germany in March 2009 a German 200 litre still was brought along , a combined pot still (copper) and column still (stainless steel). This combination allows to distill in a single process resulting in a purer yield. The philosophy is to use German technology & know-how and only the freshest and best local products to distill fine spirits of distinction.
