Poire William, Rene de Miscault
Distillerie Paul Devoille
The distillery was founded in 1859. Paul Devoille gave a real boost to the distillery at the beginning of the century, which is why even today the distillery is named after him. Paul Devoille was also mayor of the town of Fougerolles for several years.
Today, the distillery is still a family home. René Miscault and his wife Monette run the Museum of Eau de Vie (Alsace) , a unique site that brings together collections of unpublished materials relating to bottles and distillation.

The Alsace wine region is situated in northeastern France on the Rhine river and borders Germany on the east. The geography of the Alsace wine region is defined by the Vosges mountains in the west and the Rhine river in the east. The Alsace vineyards are dotted along a narrow strip, running in a generally north-south pattern, on the lower eastern slopes of the Vosges, at altitudes of 574 ft. to 1,377 ft. Alsace wines are produced under three different Appellations d'Origine Contrôlées (AOCs): Alsace AOC for white, rosé and red wines, Alsace Grand Cru AOC for white wines from certain classified vineyards and Crémant d'Alsace AOC for sparkling wines.The Alsace wine region is the only French wine region allowed to label its wines based on varietal.
