Prohibition day in Saint-Pierre and Miquelon

In 1922, the Golden Age of Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon began. Introduced by the law of April 18, which authorized the importation of foreign whiskies and geneveries, this period guaranteed the archipelago’s fortune until 1933. Take a tour with us to learn more about this Golden Age that forever marked the history of Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon!
