Thank you for this and all your other reports which I find marvellous and bring me back to France where I lived for 20 years before moving to England. I am glad to read that the traditional bouilleur de cru will not disappear and that we will not be forever deprived of those marvellous 'gouttes' which are part of French life, particularly in the country. A marvellous elixir of mirabelle comes to mind...!

Thanks for this post. I live in the heart of moonshine country in the US. I'm also struck at how a process practiced for centuries by farmers is now deemed "illegal" because the government wants to tax it. We have a growing number of small distilleries here in the states, and a growing interest among hobbyist who want to try their hand at distilling. It's legal in New Zealand. How is the rest of the world different?

Terrific website, very happy that I found it. If only we here in America could have such traditions. Our country is perhaps to new...? But hopefully, we might be able to find a way to legalise such small batch distillation in the future, keep on with such a terrific lifes work!
