Massenez

Massenez was founded in the Vallée de Villé, Alsace in the 1870s when Jean-Baptiste Massenez started distilling at home in the town of Urbeis.

He developed his distilling skills and knowledge which he passed onto his son Eugene Massenez, who in time became a master distiller himself. Eugene perfected the distillation of Framboise Sauvage Eau-de-Vie (Wild Raspberry brandy) by 1913 and it became a huge success, bolstered in no small part by the Queen of Sweden who discovered it and fell in love with the spirit when visiting Hohwald in Alsace. This resulted in Massenez being made an official supplier to the King and Queen of Sweden. Gabriel Eugène Massenez, in the 1950s, used her family connections with great French chefs, many of whom were Michelin-starred, to push Massenez spirits and liqueurs onto the lists and into the kitchens of many famous restaurants in Paris and across France, which further popularised the Massenez brand. In 1979 Gabriel built a new distillery in Val de Villé, which was handed over to the stewardship of her daughter Manou in 1982. Distributing to over 110 countries across the globe, in 2010 Massenez joined forces with Grandes Distilleries Peureux who themselves were founded in 1864.
