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.
