Description

This stamp is a tribute to the distiller who produces his own eau de vie using ancestral knowledge.

Eau de vie distillation is a tradition in Luxembourg. For a long time the process was known only to farmers who had small distilleries.

However, over the last 150 years the number of distilleries in Luxembourg has continued to fall. In 1865, there were 2011 distilleries, compared to only 153 in 2000.
