Le Philtre - Our Vodka

The liquid

Philtre vodka is organic and has no added sugar. It’s made in France, in the Cognac region, from just two quality ingredients: organic soft winter wheat and Gensac ® spring water, renowned for its purity. And that’s all. Or almost. Our ultimate ingredient is a unique savoir-faire, that of Maison Villevert, the world-renowned distillery from Charente. Blind-tested by a panel of experts, Le Philtre vodka has always come out on top.

« It is white, clear and limpid, as pleasantly pure on the rocks or in cocktails. »

The French

Maison villevert

My brother Charles, my friend Guillaume Rappeneau and I met the Maison Villevert by the end of 2018. As a trio, we went to Cognac to visit this mythical place, « inspired since 1487 », which has created world-famous elixirs. Challenge lovers, the teams at Maison Villevert invited us to taste their research on organic vodka. We are particularly proud to benefit from their expertise.


What if we told you that our vodka bottle was made only from recycled waste glass ?

Philtre is the result of a novel production process: the recovery of recycled glass waste.
This initiative cleverly transforms glass production residues, often neglected because of their atypical colors, into a precious resource.
Unlike the major spirits brands, which prefer transparent glass bottles and leave behind a treasure trove of unused shades, Le Philtre takes these residues and gives them a second life. This approach gives each bottle a unique and distinctive color palette.
In this way, Le Philtre contributes to the circular economy and minimizes the use of energy and raw materials.


The transition glass we use to create our bottles comes in a wide range of colours, from Sapphire to Emerald: sometimes Jade, sometimes Topaz, sometimes Aquamarine, sometimes Turquoise, this bottle breaks so many marketing rules that it just had to please us !

« In short, our bottles never have the same colour, for a guaranteed surprise effect with each order ! »

A surprising

Le Philtre Organic Vodka bottle was designed in our image: twisted, dented, uneven, as if blown in recycled glass. It suggests a mysterious Philtre, a medieval flask from the still of an alchemist with a pointed hat… A clear but imperfect glass, whose irregularities comfort us and bring us back to our human nature. An almost handcrafted, original, organic result, an object of consumption and decoration elaborated with a real know-how.

« A clear but imperfect glass, whose irregularities comfort us and bring us back to our human nature. »

The name

PHILTRE n. m. (lat. philtrum) Conceived according to (following) the rules of magic or witchcraft…
Excerpt from the dictionary Larousse 2020 Definition

We thought the ambiguity of the word was attractive enough to name a premium, organic and eco-responsible vodka, both literary and chic, made in a totally new way, while respecting the traditional crafts.

« Tu répands des parfums comme un soir orageux; Tes baisers sont un philtre et ta bouche une amphore. »

Les Fleurs du Mal , Charles Baudelaire

The seal

In a final gesture, the bottle is adorned with a very unique seal: a spiral-shaped graphic symbol inspired by Cho Ku Rei, the first Reiki symbol. This universal geometric figure can be found in both living and lifeless nature, as well as in many cultures. It symbolizes nature, but also peace, wholeness and humility.

« Le pouvoir enivrant qui change l’homme en dieu L’amour, miel et poison, l’amour, philtre de feu… »

Noces et festins, Victor Hugo
