Distilleries et Domaines de Provence

Provence wrapped in a bottle

The history of Distilleries et Domaines de Provence began in 1898, in Forcalquier, in the Alpes de Haute Provence. Over the years, the brand has kept its know-how, which does not prevent it from constantly innovating. Here, plants and spices are the main characters and the products reflect the terroir, while offering some exotic notes.

To the brands that have existed since the origin of the Distillery, such as Farigoule or Gentiane de Lure, have been added Pastis Grand Cru Henri Bardouin and Gin XII, names that can be found on the finest tables in France, but also with the trendiest bartenders.


Pastis Grand Cru Henri Bardouin

Unique and authentic, Pastis Grand Cru Henri Bardouin reflects the land in which it is rooted, the Montagne de Lure, in the hollow of the Mourres. Generous, fine and lively, there is precision in its construction, roundness in its expression and richness in its tasting. Its character is based on a secret alchemy of over 65 plants and spices. Some of them come from beyond the seas and oceans: star anise from China, liquorice root from Syria, Tonka bean, but also ginger, cardamom or cinnamon. Others, such as mugwort, bear the imprint of Haute-Provence. Some are even harvested around Forcalquier: thyme, rosemary, savory, sage...

At Distilleries et Domaines de Provence, we have paid allegiance to nature, to the requirements and to time. Every day, we give pride of place to the seasons, to local know-how, to artisanal work and to the praise of the gesture. It is a synergy of sensitivities and expertise, stimulated by four Master Distillers, that allows the House to achieve its characteristic precision.


Dry Gin XII has a unique palette of flavours, made up of 12 plants and spices carefully selected.

This gin is made with 5 different distillates: 1 distillate of gin with 8 plants and spices (juniper berries, coriander seeds, sweet almond, thyme, maniguette seeds, angelica roots, Florence iris roots, cardamom seeds), all distilled together, and 4 distillates of single plants (basil, rosemary, eucalyptus, mint).

All these distillations are carried out in a column still with copper plates, which allows to develop more balance and finesse and thus to extract the aromas that form the typicity of Gin XII.

It is the right balance and harmony between the different ingredients that make it so generous and unique and have enabled it to be awarded a Gold Medal in March 2022 at the CGA Paris and by the Beverage Testing Institute 2021 in the USA.

Thanks to the products of Distilleries et Domaines de Provence, the cicada region is on its way to conquer the world!
