How do you turn rice into vodka? What's the secret ingredient that makes rum taste like pralines?
Donner-Peltier Distillers has your answers. Take a tour of Thibodaux's only craft distillery any day Monday through Saturday. Sample the award-winning Rougaroux Rum, Oryza Vodka and Oryza Gin, and get a taste of LA1 Whiskey - the first aged whiskey made in Louisiana since Prohibition.
“Must see in Southern Louisiana!”
Donner-Peltier Distillery is a small distillery specializing in using local products to make quality spirits. We were given a tasting of the products and a tour and it was very interesting. Their vodka and rum are top shelf but their gin is world class. I have never tasted a gin so smooth and it's 96 proof. I won't give up the secret ingredient, you have to go yourself. And don't miss the story of the Rou ga rou!
“Always a great time”
We went back to the distillery for a visit, because of a fundraiser and dance. They had us tryout some of their new concoctions and took some of their new ideas home with us. We even bought a few souvenirs from their gift lobby. I wife and I are looking forward to when they start selling their burdens.
