Land of innovation for unique spirits
In the Ubaye valley, nestled in the heart of the Southern Alps, around the Mercantour National Park, Benoit and Jérôme use their heritage by developing new recipes for spirits.
This exceptional region, renowned for its biodiversity, is a privileged playground where they take pleasure in marrying plants in this natural garden in order to create unique products.
Over the years
Creation of the liquoristry
Inspiration germinates after an exceptionally abundant harvest of fruit, thus giving birth to the idea of creating a raspberry liquor.
Animated by passion and the desire for discoveries, other recipes for spirits are quickly emerging.
This year marks the start of a creative and determined course, where the quest for exceptional flavors combined with the short circuit make the philosophy of Lachanenche.
A store is born
Inauguration of our direct sales store, located in the town of Méolans Revel.
At the same time, we have initiated the creation of a workshop and dedicated to the development of our range of spirits.
This investment in modern and adapted installations has not only reinforced our production capacity, but also contributed to the exceptional quality of our products.
By combining traditional know-how and advanced equipment, we are proud to share our passion for spirits with our customers, while continuing to constantly raise our standard of excellence.
To enhance the authenticity of all of our spirits, developed in a 100% natural way since the creation of our business, it was natural and coherent to obtain organic certification.
This approach reflects our commitment to craft quality and strengthens our involvement in favor of environmentally friendly practices, thus emphasizing our dedication to the preservation of nature while offering exceptional products.
The arrival of Benoît was marked by the development of the pastis, the result of his in -depth training in sensory analysis, and by the integration of a centenary still.
This year has represented a significant turning point, combining sensory expertise and artisanal tradition with the addition of a centenary still, symbol of our attachment to authentic methods of production.
Benoît's contribution has brought a new dimension to our range of products, enriching our heritage while maintaining our commitment to quality and innovation.
The arrival of Jérôme was characterized by the definition of the identity of the company through the creation of the brand "Lachanenche" and the simultaneous launch of the Gin.
This period was decisive, not only marking the consolidation of our distinctive identity with the brand "Lachanenche", but also the daring introduction of a new reference with our gin.
Under the direction of Jérôme, our company has evolved to adopt a contemporary vision while preserving the authenticity that makes our renown, thus symbolizing a key step in our entrepreneurial journey.
Benoît and Jérôme took the reins by becoming co-managers of Lachanenche.
Subscribing in the continuity of initial work, they took this responsibility.
The new ambition that guides their management is the launch of the production of a whiskey, a daring project that reflects their commitment to extend and improve the family inheritance.
This period represents a new phase of growth and innovation for Lachanenche, where respect for traditions is harmoniously combined with the desire to explore new horizons in the world of spirits.
A whiskey beneath the mountain
We are proud to announce the marketing of our very first whiskey, the Laverq.
This step marks not only a new era in our journey, but also the result of our constant commitment to excellence and innovation in the art of distillation.
Whiskey embodies our passion for the creation of exceptional spirits, combining traditional know-how and contemporary flair.
We are impatient to share this unique sensory experience whith our amateurs and thus contribute to the evolution of the world of spirits.
