This was a fabulous tour with lovely friendly staff. The whole experience from the time I arrived was awesome. Obviously the sampling at the bar afterwards was a highlight.

Good value for money as the tour included tasters at the end. Interesting tour of the production of the liquor and the history. Must book in advance so that the guide you are given can speak English.

I would suggest staying in Angers and visiting the distillery by bus, very easy. The place is in the middle of an industrial estate, so no accommodation nearby
