Do you know how spirits and eau-de-vie are made? The Eau-de-vie Museum in Lapoutroie will explain everything to you. Located in a former 18th-century post-house, it houses a unique collection of some 300 bottles of liqueurs and eau-de-vie made in France in the 1950s. The collection also includes posters and 5000 miniature bottles and carafes used in restaurants. Here, you will find out about the history, production, drinking fashions and the influence of history on this product following the separation of Church and State, the role of absinthe in colonial conquests, without forgetting the relationship between alcohol and artists, the army and medicine. You can also become initiated into the secrets and different stages of making René de Miscault liqueurs, which you can taste free of charge on site.
