Cherry Rocher – Oldest French Distillery
Since 1705, Cherry Rocher established in the Rhone Valley, near the French Alps, has been recognized
for their quality liqueurs. From father to son, 8-generations have dedicated themselves to the art of distilling and blending and have been continuing the great tradition of liqueurs and spirits craft until day.
Since the 19th century, Cherry Rocher has cultivated its own vast orchard of 6,000 cherry trees in the heart of
France’s Ardèche region to make this liqueur. Eight hundred eighty-two pounds of cherries are needed to make
50 cases of Cherry Rocher. Made from Montmorency, Shatten Morell, Oblacinska sour cherries and Hedelfingen,
a sweet black variety, the company’s orchards ensure consistent quality.
Made from four different cherry juices that are carefully selected. This unique blend gives Cherry Rocher a rare aromatic power. From maceration and distillation, its purple color gives evidence of the intensity. It is still elaborated after an ancestral method that had conquered the Court of the King.
The wax seal is still hand-affixed today and seals a quality that has been perpetuated for hundreds of years.
