In the 1960’s, Jean Paul Metté used to help his neighbour produce eau-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: This expertly produced cacao spirit from Metté could be just the thing for cocktails and can be used in recipes for chocolate-based dishes.
