Sowing / Agricultural maintenance
Storage on the farm
The barley is grown on the family land.
After the harvest, the cereals are stored on the farm in our silos overlooking the distillery
Steeping in water
After the dormancy period, our barley is malted using traditional methods, either classic or peated kilning.
Brewing & Fermentation
Mixing with hot water
Filtration to separate wort from remaining dredges
Our mash is made through an infusion of 600 kilograms of malt.
During the “high temperature” fermentation (25°C), our wort develops its subtle tastes and alcohol (8%Vol. average).
Still / Stuptfler® column / Condenser
All our distillations are made in small batches in our Stupfler® still. Its internationally recognized special column reveals all the taste of the distillate.
Wood cask maturation
Maturation takes place in different casks throughout the years, giving more complexity to the taste of the whisky. Oak barrels are used, ranging from new ones to those having contained cognac, rum or great French wines.
Our privileged relationships with our barrels suppliers ensure that we always obtain the highest quality product.
