Traditional expertise

Ancestral know-how

Traditional craft trades play an important role in the Corrèze and the emphasis here is on excellence. Accordions, traditionally-made local liqueurs and aperitifs, barrels, copperware, lace, cabinet-making, wood- and slate working are some of the products and skills that shape the region’s historic, artistic and economic heritage. In recognition of their expertise, Denoix distillery, Chéri Bibi hat-maker, Borzeix Besse chocolate-maker and Maugein Accordion factory have been awarded the “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant” label for their commitment to keeping heritage alive.
