Distillation extracts the essential flavour

Quality

THE BEST OF FRUIT

A Morand eau-de-vie is a high quality product. The fruits cellared at the Morand distillery are those available on the market.

The fruits used in our eaux-de-vie and liqueurs are fresh and ripe. They are sorted by hand upon arrival at the distillery.  Only the fruits whose quality is beyond reproach are used.

THE WILLIAMS PEAR

AN EXCEPTIONAL FRUIT

The thin skin of the Valais Williams pear conceals unique flavours that the Williamine® Morand fully captures.

Our Williams pears come exclusively from the Valais, the preferred land for cultivating this fruit.  This origin is a requirement of our AOP label.

Once ripe, the pears are sorted by hand, crushed, and then fermented before being distilled. 12 kg of Williams pears are used to create a single litre of 43% vol. Williamine® Morand, and nearly 20 kg are used for our CŒUR spirit.

THE LUIZET APRICOT

INIMITABLE FLAVOUR

The traditional apricot of the Valais, the Luizet offers incomparable flavour and qualities essential to the production of an eau-de-vie.

The use of this apricot varietal and its exclusive sourcing from the Valais are requirements of our AOP label. To ensure quality production, Distillerie Morand operates its own orchards of Luizet apricots on the hills of Saxon.

The apricots are harvested once ripe, sorted by hand at the distillery, and then fermented before being distilled.  12 kg of Luizet apricots are used to create a single litre of 43% vol. Abricotine® Morand, and nearly 20 kg are used for our CŒUR spirit.
