The Combier distillery is a very interesting, fully active,trading and functioning distillery. The tour was full of information on the history of the distillery and followed up with tastings. Highly recommend this tour.

Hello, thank you for your question.
As we are not yet in the middle of the touristic season, there is only 3 visit per day (10.30am, 2.30pm & 4.30pm). To have a tour in English, we advice you to book the visit as soon as you can so the visit will be in English. Later in the season, we're trying to have at least one English tour per day, but the time can change : we are trying to adapt ourselves to the request of our customers. If you book the visit, it is sure you have the visit in English if no one as already booked it in french.
If we cannot make the visit in English, we have a documentation we can give you so you can follow the tour and we are answering your question at any moment.
Don't hesistate to contact us by e-mail for further information, question or to book a visit !
Hope to see you soon,
The Tourism Team.
