Just taken the time to read the reviews AFTER our recent second visit. The first time was several years ago. Many of the reviews reflect our experience. The little museum with its short video and explanatory panels do not take long to view. You can also look into the production area. Nothing was going on on our visit, perhaps because France shuts down in August! Then it's into the shop with its tasting area. The girls are very pleasant and you can taste all of the syrops, liqueurs and spirits. The range is extensive and the flavours are original. We were planning to buy some syrops until we noticed the prices (€5.40 per bottle). Convinced that we could buy them cheaper in the supermarket,we decided to buy a creme de figue which we had not seen elsewhere and at €12 seemed a better deal. Indeed, checking afterwards our local supermarket sells standard ranges of the syrops for €2.70. You need to know that there are special offers available in the shop, but these were for very considerable purchases of at least €20. However, if you pick up a Pass Provence from a tourist information office you can qualify for a 'gift with purchase', a bottle of a flavoured wine called Marquise sold at €5.40. There is no minimum spend. Now the 'confusing' bit. On reading the reviews that complain about the rip off prices, management responses state that 'this is not a factory shop'. Well. you could fool me. The gallery looks directly into the bottling plant and there's a jolly big warehouse behind the museum/ shop. The responses go on to state that the supermarkets get favourable pricing for their bulk buying. Could this be offset by the lack of distribution costs here? In short, if you are passing call in by all means but be aware of what you are visiting and that you will be paying indirectly for the free tastings. On the other hand, if you have more time to spare, consider a visit to the monastery of Aiguebelle nearby where the syrops were developed by the monks in times gone by. It's a haven of peace and quiet and spiritually uplifting. It does have a shop but I can't comment on current prices.

We didn't get to do a guided tour, which would probably have been very interesting, but the small museum offers a lot of information and you get to see how the products are produced. The highlight definitely is the tasting. They produce a large amount of different syrups, some are rather conventional and others very different from what you may know. You can try as much as you want. They also produce liquor. It was a very good experience and we bought a few bottles of syrup. The place is definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.
