The Bally distillery was born in 1917, when the Habitation Lajus estate (existing since 1670) was purchased by Jacques Bally, a young engineer who, after having renovated it, built the distillery. In 1987 Remy Cointreau acquired the distillery operations and Bally was closed by moving the operations to Simon Distillery; the original recipes were kept intact by continuing the production of sugar in Lajus, as well as the maturation and bottling of the Rhums.
