« Essences de Gascogne » : first harvests

The 2014 plantations are now well formed with a promising fragance, and the 2015 little sisters are as nice.

We start the harvest beginning of july with the organic lavandula angustifolia (lavender), as usual by hand.

We’re waiting for a special machine tool, conceived to harvest without damaging the plants and their flowers. After a semi-automatic cut of the stems, we have to pick up the flowers.

A non-stop go back and forth by the tracteur bring the crop to the distillery unit, where the process of distillation will begin, after a short drying time on coton canvas.
