In the 1960’s, Jean Paul Metté used to help his neighbour produce eaux de vie. This started his passion and motivated him to learn the craft and later, he opened his own distillery. Keeping to traditional methods, Jean Paul Metté first produced classical eau de vie like mirabelle plum and raspberry. He quickly expanded the range by introducing unique eaux de vie like flowers, berries and truffle.
He took his godson Philippe Traber under his wing in the mid-1980’s and passed on his passion, knowledge and secrets and who eventually took over on Jean Paul’s retirement in 1997. The distillery is located in Ribeauville and is managed by Philippe and Nathalie Traber.
Tasting Notes: A classic pear eau de vie from Mette in France. Fragrant and fruity, this is best enjoyed from a tasting glass, to get the full aroma and flavour of the expertly crafted spirit. Nose of a disconcerting purity.
The fruit is proving of great finesse and maturity or ooire unveiled a grainy, juicy a wish. On the palate harmony is radiant with delicacy touch and neat persistence.
