A perfumer, mountain biking, a distillery,
and a lavender farm await you in the Memphrémagog
region. A visit to these attractions is an essential stop on any
trip to the Eastern Townships.
This Quebec-based haute perfume house was
founded in 2015, in a hundred-year-old barn in the Eastern Townships
by Alexandra Bachand, perfumer and olfactory artist. La Grange du
Parfumeur favours natural and sustainable ingredients in its
formulas. Find a collection of fresh and delicate fragrances to
illuminate every moment of daily life.
To discover nature and the Parc
national du Mont-Orford in an original way, consider taking a
Fatbike. This bike with oversized tires ensures good traction on
gravel. Ride on the many mountain trails, for everyone from
beginners to experts, ranging from 1.8 km to 18 km and easy to
difficult. A thrilling activity you won’t want to miss!
A new distillery, located in a repurposed
church, is now open in the heart of Magog. The Cherry
River Distillery is a place where you can sample gin, vodka
and cocktails in the tasting room. The bell tower rising to the sky
will show you the way to the terrace. Guided tours are offered to
visitors looking to deepen their knowledge of spirits and learn more
about the company.
Recently moved to Magog, Bleu
Lavande welcomes you to its new site. The lavender farm has
indoor and outdoor features for visitors to see. An interactive
space offered all year long, designed by Moment Factory, will
immerse you in the lavender field. Other spaces are used to teach
visitors more about the plant’s relaxing properties. Tasting
workshops, massages and horticultural tips are other ways to know
all about this purplish flower. There is also a shop on site where
you can buy lavender-based products.
