Alfred Giraud Sets The Standard For French Malt Whisky
Looking to challenge convention, Phillippe Giraud set out to combine his family’s cognac expertise and passion for whisky. Merging techniques mastered by the Giraud family of cask makers and cognac cellar masters over the past 130 years, the family looks to establish a new tradition of French malt whisky, a refinement they call a balance of nature and creativity. Phillipe said the unique processes for milling, mashing, fermentation, distillation and blending result in an exceptionally powerful, aromatic palette for the new French malt whisky. “Producing spirits for more than a hundred years gives us an overall expertise in distilling, blending, and aging,” Phillipe said. “Producing specifically cognac for more than a hundred years gives us an edge in blending, as cognac is probably the most blended spirit. We apply typical cognac techniques to the production of our grain-to-glass malt.”
