It is based on the abundant natural resources of our country – cereals, water and oak – on its crafts – brassware, cooperage – as well as on its know – how: malting, brewing, distillation, aging in wood and assembly.
In France, multiple ingredients (wheat, rye, buckwheat or corn) and different distillation techniques (in one or more passes, per batch or continuously, direct or indirect heating) are used to produce the whiskies but the malt whiskies predominate.
It respects the European regulation of spirits and the French texts which stipulate that a malt whisky (or single malt) is elaborated from malted barley and within a single distillery.
Therefore, the malt whisky expresses the unique know-how of a distillery and its master blender.
Though, It is quite possible to assemble malt whiskies from several distilleries: this is called double, triple or pure malt.
The secret and the quality of these whiskies rely on the perfect mastery of blending techniques.
These techniques allow to broaden the aromatic palette and to magnify the eaux-de-vie. Double or triple malts express the unique know-how of the master blender.
