Domaine de Mavela: an experience at the heart of an artisan distillery

U duminiu Mavela, una spirienza a mezzu a una distilleria artighjanale

On the agenda today is a visit to this famous distillery of Corsican whisky and spirits, which produces the internationally renowned P&M whisky as well as Cap Mattei.

P&M was rated the fifth best whisky in the world by famous ‘whisky bible’ author Jim Murray in 2013. 


It is rare to find a malt with this level of complexity and charm.

We were shown around the domaine by Andréane, who first took us to the maceration room.  

She opened one of the steel vats containing the wild myrtle berries that have already been stewing for a few months. 

She passionately recounted the story of the estate, which began in the 90s with Jean Claude Venturini.


The tour continued in the distillation room, visible from the domaine entrance. Here stands its vast copper still, recognised as one of the best in the world. 

Everything here is done to preserve the aromas and produce high-quality spirits using local products. 

We also saw inside the oak barrel storage room, containing barrels from the largest Corsican vintners.

Then Andréane showed us a projection in a vintage cinema, summarising everything she’d told us about the history and evolution of the industry. We ended with a tasting of liqueurs, brandies and whiskies.


Afterwards I headed for the shop where local products are on sale, including the famous P&M single malt, available in small quantities each year. 

Domaine de Mavela is a real museum, presenting all the stages of the on-site whisky and spirit production. Whisky fans should buy their bottles quickly! 

Marcé Lepidi Acquaviva , an island artist, has also left his mark on some of the estate walls.
