MUSTARDS & VINEGAR &GHERKINS
Incomparable mustard-making know-how since 1797
The making of vinegar and the city of Orléans have been historically linked since the Renaissance, when wines were transported by boat on the Loire to reach Paris. With Orleans being the last river port of their journey, the wines that had turned into vinegar during the journey were unloaded to supply the 300 vinegar makers of the city. No less than 80% of vinegars in France were then produced in Orléans.
The Maison Martin Pouret opened its doors in 1797 on Rue du Faubourg Bannier where they have been established since this date. After the closure of the last Mustard and Vinegar making houses, Martin Pouret has became the last Maison (house) to perpetuate the traditional know-how in France and abroad.
