In 1895 Michel GRALLET, Amable and Ophèle GRALLET's son, planted his first Mirabelle tree in Rozelieures, located between Nancy, Lunéville, Baccarat and Epinal.
His son Jean developped the orchard and installed a Distillation workshop.
In 1973, after studying as an agronomist, Hubert GRALLET and his wife Anne-Marie took over the family business and created the sales market of Liqueurs and Eaux de Vie directly from the property.
In 2002, Hubert and Anne-Marie, joined by their daughter Sabine and her husband Christophe DUPIC, had the innovative idea of creating a home for the Mirabelle plum in order to promote the fruit of their terroir and to share their passion with the public.
Then innovations accelerated with:
- the line of perfumes and cosmetics L'Or du Verger so dear to Anne-Marie Grallet, inspired by the Mirabelle tree flower and the Mirabelle plum kernel.
- the inspiration to travel with the production of Gin, Vodka, bitter beer made with Mirabelle plums, and the Lorraine Pastis.
- the passion shared by Christophe and Hubert for Whisky which led to the local production of a Collection of peated and aromatic Whiskies "Made in Lorraine": G.Rozelieures, a Whisky with an assertive French Touch.
See the website dedicated to Whisky Rozelieures.
- A new scenography, for an even more appealing tour of the Maison de la Mirabelle.
Today, the tree farm extends over 30 hectares of fruit trees, including 25 hectares of Mirabelle trees, as well as Williams pear trees and plum trees. The grain farm also produces barley, cereal which gave Christophe and Hubert the idea to produce their own Whisky.
