For more than 115 years, the Brothers of the Holy Family have been producing drinks with beneficial properties, a clever mix of alpine plants that are often rare.
Label: "Entreprise du patrimoine vivant" (EPV) / Label AB / Charte Bio Rhône Alpes.

Visit and free tasting upon reservation: discovery of the history of Kario, the cellars with the huge oak barrels, visit of the production line and free tasting of all the products in the shop.

More than a century ago, Brother Henri-Marie, herbalist of the Brotherhood of the Holy Family, developed a secret formula.
No less than 32 wild plants, gathered from the four corners of Savoie, Dauphiné and Bugey, and a patient distillation process gave birth to KARIO, a tonic and restorative drink. After a delicate and skilful maceration in oak barrels, some of which can contain up to 18,000 litres, and surrounded by the scent of aromatic plants, . The distillation process takes place in traditional steam-heated stills.
At the end of your visit, it is advisable to taste and appreciate a vast choice of plant drinks: the famous KARIO, a drink with 32 plants, the alcoholic version, the KYLON (23°), the green and yellow STELLINA as a digestive liqueur, our Marc du Bugey (30 years old) aged in barrels of an unequalled finesse, and our latest creation, Holypop, the organic soda which comes in a range of 7 flavours...
So many invigorating and beneficial discoveries to savour before visiting the famous Jura and Pre-Alpine sites in the surrounding area.
