Alfred Giraud Heritage French Malt Whisky – France


An intense and complex, yet elegant whisky, HERITAGE showcases complex and balanced flavours, the result of masterful blending and aging. Three non-peated French malt distillates that matured in different casks, mostly in extra old cognac casks with a proportion in new French Limousin and American oak casks are blended together, then matured in extra old cognac casks.

Produced in limited quantity by access to exceptional barrels, this whiskey is a blend of three unshrouded French malt distillates.

These three distillates are then housed in three types of casks: a majority containing very old cognacs, new French oak barrels from Limousin and new oak barrels.

The blend is then aged exclusively in barrels containing very old cognacs.

ABV 45.9%, 70cl

COLOUR: Natural, light and golden.

NOSE: Complex yet balanced. Buttery pastries and brioche develop into aromas of toasted malts and sweet baking spices.

PALATE: Structured with a full body. Brioche quickly transitions into grassy notes. A slight woodiness balanced perfectly with vanilla and nutmeg. Refined and well-rounded.

FINISH: Sophisticated and subtle. The soft spices and nutty malts balance beautifully leading to slightly sweet notes from the extra old cognac casks.




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.
