Color : copper gold

Find out more about Alfred Giraud

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.
