Alfred Giraud Heritage Description

The new and luxurious 'Heritage' by Alfred Giraud blends together three unpeated French malt whiskies. For Heritage, these malts are matured in different casks: most having previously contained old cognacs, new French oak casks from Limousin, and new American oak casks. The blend is then aged exclusively in barrels that previously contained very old cognacs. The whisky is then bottled at 46.1% abv without chill-filtration.

Aromas of flaky, buttery pastries and brioche fill the nose, with toasted malts and baking spices making their way in. Complex yet balanced, this whisky is full-bodied and appears to be more woody and grassy on the palate, balanced with vanilla and nutmeg. A subtle finish, the soft spices and sweet notes from the old Cognac casks linger on.

Knowledge Bar

Although the Alfred Giraud brand is new, it is steeped in a tradition of excellence in distilling. Creator Philippe Giraud is descended from a line of coopers and cognac cellar masters; his great-grandfather Alfred, for whom the brand is named, was the cellar master at a renowned maison de cognac for over 30 years. Philippe himself worked for the same maison de cognac and, later, for Balvenie and Glenfiddich owner William Grant & Sons.

To create the Alfred Giraud brand, Philippe joined forces with his father Jean-Pierre, uncle Andre, and two more former cellar masters of the same renowned maison de cognac.

Jean-Pierre serves as the company's Production Director, André Giraud is 95 years old and helps source the rare cognac casks for aging the whisky, while Georges Clot and Gaetan Mariolle serve as co-master blenders.
