Founded in Puy-en-Velay in 1859 by Joseph Rumillet-Charretier, a herbalist who invented the original "Verveine du Velay” liquor, the Verveine du Velay-Pagès distillery belongs to PAGES VEDRENNE.

The company makes several varieties of this hundred-year old liquor called "Verveine du Velay”: green verveine, yellow verveine, "5 year old” and "10 year old” liquors. The liquor’s original recipe, made of 32 plants, has not changed since its creation in 1859. Pagès grows the verbena plants on site and also buys crops off nuns from the neighbouring commune of Vals-près-le-Puy. The entire production process takes place on site, with the exception of bottling, which is done in Nuits-Saint-Georges byVedrenne. Pagès organises guided tours of the distilling workshop, enabling visitors to discover how the liquor is produced, along with a tasting session and the opportunity to buy from the shop. Pagès products are available in supermarkets and in grocery stores.
