Get to know our Corsican Immortelle producers
"I was the first to grow immortelle in Corsica - although it is a universe I did not know. These are trades that are primarily passion before being remunerative. And then one day, without realizing it, you get to live it! There are people who never realize their dream and I am proud to have achieved mine"
"Life is made of opportunities and it is them who guide us! Thanks to these circumstances, today I cultivate 7 hectares of immortelle flowers. This size of farm suits the balance my family life. Even if I do not work on my crops every day, my family and I live in the heart of our fields. The immortal flower pulses our life and live with it every day."
"I had to get know the plant and had to start from the beginning. They were very difficult years, and I learned everything on the field. My father always told me: if you do it, do it at your best. The immortelle has do it at your best. The immortelle has opened the doors of distillation and it is thanks to this flower that I am passionate about my job."
