In operation since 1840, the family-operated Fallot factory is the only mustard mill that still uses Burgundian mustard seed (most producers source their seeds from Canada). Now run by Marc Désarménien, the grandson of founder Edmond Fallot, the modern production facility at the edge of Beaune is open for hour-long tours in which you can watch mustard being milled, mixed, and packaged. Next door, in a reconstruction of the original mill, a museum traces the history of mustard from antiquity to the present, and you can sample Fallot's half-dozen types of mustard—including one that's gingerbread-flavored—in the boutique. The only problem is that after tasting them, you'll have a hard time going back to industrial varieties.—David Downie
