  • Although I checked Combier's website, we missed the last tour of the day. However, what the website does not tell you is that there is only one English tour a day. If you want to go, I suggest you con...  more »
  • Hello, great place to visit because of its craft and making the products. Our young friendly guide who knows his subject. The tasting at the end of visit is more meaningful and better put in perspective the manufacturing techniques... If you see what I mean! €3,20 / person for a group of 17 for almost 2 hours of visit, which could be better?

  • We arrived late in the day so we did not get to take a tour of the distillery but we did taste some triple sec and absinthe at the shop and bought a bottle to take home. We visited in September 2015

  • A great little distillery. Loved the quaint tour and the tasting afterwords was a heavy pour. So worth 4€
  • Fantastic tour of this historical distillery and delicious samples at the end.
  • A short but friendly visit. The explanations are clear, and it is possible to ask questions. A small tasting is offered after the visit, even for people who don't drink alcohol since there are syrups to taste.

  • Great tour that chronicles the creation of the triple sec that made the reputation of Combier (previously old confectioner). Then comes the time to taste, if you are driving you may not immediately leave with, enjoy in rather to eat in one of the restaurants located nearby (the Tradition or the Alchemist).

  • You pay to see a distillery in practice consists of one room with old distillers. There were a bunch of wasps in the conduit by which they then make sugar syrups; the question of why the laconic reply: "Yes, but then they leave..." Where? in the syrup? I have seen some pots of dyes and artificial flavors on a counter. Isn't that use them?? Dulcis in fundo: final tasting we are given a disposable plastic cup that is not changed or rinsed between liquor and more!
