Despite their small size, their production process is by no means a fast one. Before they can be painted and decorated, the dragées go through several stages for about two months.

This depth of detail requires a continuous production of dragées, to be sold especially at Easter time.

The final step is one of the reasons for their success:

The technique is appropriately called ‘embroidering’. Using precise movements, the liqueur dragées, of different shapes and sizes, are strategically placed on trays, ready to be crafted.

They are then caressed by the delicate hands of those who paint and decorate them, creating miniature works of art.

It takes years of experience to get the gestures right and to handle them with the expertise necessary to obtain the intended forms, a role that is given to the longest-standing employees.

In the end, there are dragées in the form of piglets, babies, carrots, peas, strawberries, cherries etc.
