The orchard


500 ACRES dedicated to Griottines®

The work of the distiller and agricultural scientist start as soon as the first wild Morello cherry trees begin to flower and continues until the fruits are fully ripe: the size of the fruits is determined by the amount of irrigation, while the fructose content depends on how much sunshine they receive.

Using these criteria together with the firmness of the fruit, Grandes Distilleries Peureux decides on precise areas for harvesting and the quantity to be picked in each area. The first challenge is the fact that the Oblachinska, a sour cherry of outstanding flavour and quality, and the sole variety used in our Griottines, only grows in the Balkans.
