The whisky "Voyage" from Alfred Giraud is the first whisky of the Exploration range.
It is a blend of 2 casks of very qualitative Single Malts, aged in Sauternes and French Robinia casks. The Sauternes brings notes of raisins, honey and candy. The robinier gives notes of white flowers. Its use is quite rare in barrel production.
This original ageing is at the origin of a whisky which is completely in the image of the House of Alfred Giraud.
The Giraud family is a family of coopers and cellar masters since 1875.
As early as 1910, Louis Giraud worked in a prestigious Cognac house as the person in charge of the ageing of the famous eaux-de-vie. Alfred, his son and André, his grandson succeeded him as cellar masters until 1990.
In 1995, Philippe Giraud, who is part of the 4th generation, decided to create Alfred Giraud, following a collaboration with a renowned Scotch whisky producer.
Thanks to their extensive knowledge of whisky and cognac, and the links they have established with the best coopers and producers, the Giraud family is constantly striving for perfection. They elaborate spirits in the greatest respect of the rules of art.
