The Manguin Distillery in Avignon: cheese dishes and spirits

For nearly 60 years, the Manguin Distillery has been producing spirits in its large copper stills, according to the traditional methods. It first made its name with brandy made with Williams pears from Barthelasse, the island on the Rhone where the distillery is located, just opposite Avignon. Since then production has diversified extensively, but has never lost its focus on craftsmanship and quality. Of course you can visit the distillery, taste the fruit brandies (or lavender, or olive oil!), and, now, you can enjoy a cheese and spirits tasting menu.
 
“Pears and Cheese”: this is the name that was quickly found to describe these tasting menus! On the one hand, cheeses ripened by the master cheese-maker from Vaison-la-Romaine, and Best Craftsman of France, Josiane Déal, and on the other, spirits, specially selected by Emmanuel Hanquiez, the dynamic owner of the Manguin Distillery. In all, 7 unexpected combinations, that you discover during a friendly meal.
 
Practical details: for individuals, fixed dates, approximately once a month (calendar on the web site), by reservation only. Price: €35/person.
Small groups on request, from 10 to 20 people.
 
Tours of the distillery: every Saturday at 11am, free tours for individuals.
For groups, on request from Monday to Saturday.
