About Fallot Mustard Mill

In 1634, out of concern for the quality of is mustard, the city of Dijon imposed the first statues on the mustard-making trade. Even before this date the region was well known for the quality of its mustard. 

The 18th century discovery of verjuice - juice from grapes harvested in Burgundy - put the finishing touch of quality to this fine product. Adding verjuice to the brown mustard seed and grinding the mixture using traditional grindstones - so as not to damage the heat-sensitive paste - helped to earn DIJON MUSTARD a worldwide reputation for quality.

Etablissements Edmond Fallot has been producing mustard in the town of Beaune, just to the south of Dijon, since 1840. They are very proud and protective of their tradition. Now, as before, Fallot looks to the mustard-maker’s craft to guarantee a quality product, which is why they still use traditional millstones in their process. 

The Fallot Mustard Mill is the last independent Burgundy 'Moutarderie - mustard mill. Fallot has been an independent Burgundian family business since 1840, and is the only one still housed on its original premises, a few steps away from the Hospice of Beaune. Marc Désarménien, the grandson of the man who took over the company, is currently in control of the business, while his father still plays an active role in the company. 

Fallot is very proud and protective of the Dijon tradition. The seeds are selected for their quality and are still ground as before using traditional millstones. Now as before, Fallot looks to the mustard-maker's craft to guarantee a quality product, which is why they still use traditional millstones in their process - indeed, they the only Dijon producer that still uses the traditional stone mill method.
