G. Rozelieures Rare Single Malt Whisky 40% 70cl
Rozelieures is small village in Lorraine at the foot of an ancient volcano (referenced in the logo), with a population of only 200 people. It accounts for 20% of all the malting barley grown in France, and some is also exported to Scotland. The Grallet-Dupic farm distillery has been operational for over 150 years – records show Amable Grallet and wife Ophelie founding it in 1860. As phylloxera decimated vines, his son Michel planted mirabelle plum trees to distil.
5th generation Sabine’s husband Christophe Dupic had a keen interest in whisky – along with father-in-law Hubert – and following a visit to Scotland in 2002 realised they had everything needed to make whisky, and so started to do so.
They were the first distillery in France to use peated barley. Five storehouses are used for maturation, one of them a disused military fort dating back to the 1870s. The 6th generation of Grallet/Dupic are now moving into ownership
The venture is a true field to glass operation with everything taking place in Lorraine. A large proporation of casks are made with wood from 2 nearby forest and they completed construction of their own malting house in 2017.
'Rare' is a lightly peated expression matured in ex-Sauternes wine barrels for around 8 years - the dessert wine imparts a soft sweetness which overlays the gentle smoky tones of bonfire.
