Gabriel Boudier is now synonymous with authentic tastes.
The story of the House of Gabriel Boudier is primarily one of passion, commitment and of certain key events that have established our good name and reputation today. It is also a story of a place, Dijon, which gave its name to the "Crème de Cassis de Dijon" a protected geographical indication now recognised all over the world. The House of Gabriel Boudier is based on the principles and values of its founders. People who knew how to develop an idea without betraying its spirit.
In 1909, Gabriel Boudier took over the house of Fontbonne, founded in 1874 and renamed it with his own name. He established the business at Boulevard de Strasbourg in Dijon where it continued to develop until his death in 1918. In 1936, his widow sold the house to Marcel Battault, who decided not to change the trading name because of its high quality reputation; and he, in turn, handed the business to his nephew Pierre Battault. Thus two families in succession have built the reputation for quality at the House of Gabriel Boudier while insisting on the motto "Quality without compromise".In 1969, the company moved to Rue de Cluj in Dijon to allow for expansion and development and it remains family owned and the only significant independent producer in this sector.
In 2008, Gabriel Boudier released their sublime safrron gin, which took the market by storm. Following the success, in 2010 they released their premium Bartenders range of drinks, which are popular today.
