Premium Gourmet

Premium Gourmet, a given for Bernard Baud in which the spirit of the company can be qualified in one word: avant-garde.

While the expertise of Grandes Distilleries Peureux in the art of distillation and fruit maceration is indisputable, the family business must also adapt to its market and diversify. Its credentials in the gastronomy sector since 1950 drove it to set up the Griottines® Institute, which is both a superb boutique store and a laboratory for cuisine and culinary demonstrations.

All that was missing was a renowned chef who could make the most of the Grandes Distilleries Peureux products in the kitchen. Parallel to this, François and Marie Lachaux, who were born in the region, dreamed of returning to their routes... A meeting with Bernard Baud was all it took to propel them straight to the top of the Griottines® Institute in 2008.

François Lachaux – Best Craftsman in France – surrounded by his wife Marie and his team, spent every day working in the Griottines® Institute laboratory to try and develop recipes that were as indulgent as they were high quality.

From tests on the new distilleries’ products to specially crafted items sold in the boutique, every day is more intense, and the development of Premium Gourmet in France and on the international stage were a great omen for the biscuit workshop.

This means it is a true team opening up to give you the best possible quality: terrines, foies gras, jams, Griottins…

Terrines, foies gras…

Griottines® Terrines are made using a unique, hand-made procedure based on top quality raw materials, developed by François Lachaux, Best Craftsman in France, in our kitchens at the Griottines® Institute in Fougerolles.

“Surrounded by my friends, my children and grandchildren, when I open and taste my beautiful terrines on a slice of toasted farmhouse bread, I always think to myself that sharing is such a joy! ”

Jams

Created in Fougerolles and developed by François Lachaux, Best Craftsman in France, at the Griottines® Institute, using exceptional, locally sourced raw materials, our jams have a unique taste and texture…

“Placing the fruit in a glass jar and giving it the best possible care to ensure that it bursts with flavor on your spoon is a delicate procedure which must be carried out using only the best quality ingredients, cooking them slowly in my trusty copper basin, right up until the precise moment that I stop the cooking. And that’s all... Now you be the judge! ”
