Distillation stills

Georges Lincelé patiently put together the collection of stills over a period of 20 years. His search for old stills focused primarily on the region renowned for the production of true lavender – Vaucluse, the Alpes de Haute-Provence, the Hautes-Alpes, Drôme. Come discover the biggest collection of lavender-distilling stills made of copper, from the 16th century to the present time, and learn about the 3 different distilling techniques.

Two documentaries tell the story of the farm work involved in growing lavender – cutting, distillation and planting true lavender.
