La Prunelle de Troyes
The Troyes Prunelle: a historic liquor
Made from the kernels of small, wild plums known as blackthorn or sloe, Prunelle de Troyes won a gold medal at the World Fair in Paris in 1900. This liqueur has been produced in the Cellier Saint-Pierre Distillery opposite Troyes Cathedral since 1840. Dating back to the XII century, this cellar is the only one to survive the fires of 1188 and 1524. The history-laden stones became the work of canons who devotedly produced this liqueur away from the hubbub of the city.
