Since 1872, the Bigallet family has perpetuated the art of making syrups and liqueurs based on fruits and plants using the same processes. The visit will be an opportunity to share the passion for work through the discovery of the manufacturing workshops.

Bigallet, inventor of Citronade, also offers Liqueurs des Alpes and specialties such as Génépi.
The Bigallet Gallery retracing the history and our know-how is open during the hours of the shop.
It was in 1872 that Félix Bigallet decided to create a syrup and liqueur factory in Virieu. Did he suspect that his modest enterprise would cross the centuries?
