Mathieu Teisseire, a maker and seller of liqueurs and vinegars originally from the South of France, moves to Grenoble, in the Alps, where he establishes a distillery.
His production of ratafia, a cherry-based liqueur, made himrich fame and famous.
Camille Teisseire, the grandson of Mathieu Teisseire, takes on the family business. Politically active, he is a member of the National Assembly for the department of Isère andeventually left the family business.
François Reynaud, a liqueur and spirits merchant and the founder of the Reynaud family line, aquires the business.
After François’ death, his two sons begin production of alcohol-free syrups with the aid of pasteurisation, a technique discovered at the end of the 19th century.
The idea for the Teisseire bottle was strongly inspired by the bottles used by the riders in the Tour de France. After mixing a syrup with water in one of these now-famous bottles, the idea takes off that this could be the company’s finished product, for large scale production.
With the aid of their famous advertising vans, Teisseire goes on to become one of the first businesses to appear in the Tour de France’s publicity caravan.
