Located in Isère in the French Alps and created in the 19th century, the Bigallet distillery produces liqueurs and regional specialities such as Génépi Le Grand Tetras, Thyme liqueur and China China.
Bigallet is also the founder of the famous Citronade, a lemon cordial, which is still produced in the same way as when it was first created, with macerated lemon zests that are distilled and then mixed with sugar cane syrup. At first this was an alcoholic product but became alcohol-free thanks to a special manufacturing process.
Génépi is created by infusing and distilling sprigs of the wild plant Génépi Artemisia Mutuellina, which grows in the Alps, above 2000 metres. The plant belongs to the same family as absinthe. This spirit is light in sugar and much appreciated by connoisseurs looking for a rich aromatic intensity. The Génépi Grand Tetras offers a very aromatic and herbal palate; the bitterness is sweetened by fine aniseed and lemon notes and finishes with a slightly peppery note.
