Museum of Limoges Distilleries

For almost two centuries, Limoges was the city of distilleries. Major trading hub, the city received cognac, armagnac, rum, liqueur wines, cane sugar, fruits, plants and spices, essential for the making of numerous specialities. Limoges had a big quantity of oaks to make barrels, a tasty and pure sort of water, creative and expert labour for a new activity, aside from porcelain, to expand and thrive. Thus, from 1780 to 1930, there were several dozens of distilleries in Limoges. Surrounded by the raw materials’ aromas and by the makings in progress, you will be able to share the venerable art work traditions of the liqueur masters of the past, still respected today.

Open from Tuesdays to Saturdays: 8.30am-noon and 2pm-6pm. Free tour.
