The Devoille distillery was founded in 1859. It still bears the name of its founder, Paul Devoille, since he largely contributed to its success and the beginning of the century. He is to be thanked for the recipe of Libertine (1894), now preciously kept at the Musée des Eaux de Vie in Lapoutroie, France.
After having belonged to Raymond Gouttefroy (son-in-law of Paul Devoille), the distillery was handed over to René de Miscault in 1985. The latter considerably changed the running of the company and enlarged the range of its products and also opened the Paul Devoille distillery to the public.
Today it is Hugues de Miscault, the son of René de Miscault, who runs this family distillery.
