I just wrote the review of my stating here a minute ago and would love to know more about the reason why production stopped from the grandson h=who wrote here a few days ago.

Very sweet, smooth and delicious. I found a bottle in my late father's cellar (opened and corked). Sadly, having taken out the cork and decanted of and strained the liqueur, I managed to heat-crack the bottle in washing and sterilising it - Ahhhhh. However, I still have the decanted liqueur to relish and taste in the future.
My grandfather (Maurice Deloffre) was the director of La Vielle Cure, a delicious herbal liqueur. The business was passed down to my uncle Michel,my father Gaston and my other uncle Jacques, when my grandfather passed away around 1940. Michel and Gaston ran the business in Paris in the office of "rue st Lazarre " .and Jacques ran the manufactory in Cenon, near Bordeaux. The business was sold in the 1960s .The recipe, however remains in our family. La Vieille Cure has not been made since and the production was over in the mid 1980s.

This liqueur is quite wonderful. Sadly they stopped producing it in 1986 so We have not had it since then. A beautiful mix of herbs cognac and I think armagnac. Brings back memories of Christmas and liqueur tastings..
