VOYAGE by Alfred GIRAUD
Double Malt - Triple Wood - Natural Color - Non Chill-Filtered
The Exploratory Range is driven by our desire to create inventive, balanced flavors while highlighting the unique tastes of France.
VOYAGE, our first creation in this range, is a blend of two single malts, one leaning on fruity notes and the other on notes of grain.
Each is matured in barrels with bold characteristics, new French robinia & Sauternes casks.
Our cellar master reaches the perfect balance by blending the two spirits prior to the final aging in cognac casks.
Whisky maker’s notes :
Nose: White flower, custard and honey, balanced with black currant and ripe grapes.
Palate: Soft and round with a sophisticated sweetness. Matured sweet grape, fresh flower and acacia honey are balanced by a bold structure.
Finish: Luxurious mouth feel, sweet floral complexity with a slight presence of wood on the finish.

With almost a hundred years' experience in the production of some of the most highly prized cognacs, the Giraud family has drawn on its perfect mastery of blending to give birth to a new tradition, that of French malt whisky, both bold and remarkably refined, a subtle balance between nature and human creativity.
Alfred Giraud controls the production of his malts from grain to glass. Convinced that a whisky begins with the best ingredients, no compromises are made when developing his creations in small quantities.
His whiskies are made from the finest French barley, malted in his malting plant in the Hautes Vosges and then distilled at the Saint Palais distillery in Charente Maritime. The Giraud family owns a collection of exceptional casks and a forestry operation in the Limousin region, which they use to mature their whiskies. Blending has run in the veins of this family of cask makers and cellar masters since 1873: it is the heritage, the family heritage is Alfred GIRAUD's greatest asset, making it possible to combine the best malts to give life to a whisky that is greater than the sum of its ingredients, creating a true experience halfway between craft and creation.
