The Combier distillery was founded in 1834 in the Loire Valley. Since the creation of the Original Triple sec, a delicious orange liqueur made with bitter and soft orange peels, the distillery has never stopped producing distinguished liqueurs and other spirits in the same original copper stills. We offer you today a full handcrafted range of liqueurs, aperitifs, premium absinthes, syrups and organic syrups. For an english guided tour, please contact us!

The Combier distillery is a very interesting, fully active,trading and functioning distillery. The tour was full of information on the history of the distillery and followed up with tastings. Highly recommend this tour.

Small distillery - with beautiful copper stills. The Royal Combier Triple sec is excellent. It was great to see them extracting the essential flavors by hand from the rinds.
