About Guillotine Heritage Barrel Aged Vodka
Founded by Paul Berkmann with a mission to bring a 100% French, all-natural vodka to the world, Guillotine is based on premium French ingredients and longstanding artisanal techniques. Together with Jean-Luc Braud, coming from the Rémy Cointreau Group, as the artisan maître de chai, Guillotine is crafted with extensive spirit knowledge, bringing together traditional artisanal methods and modern savoir-faire.
Their vegan-friendly and gluten-free signature vodka of uncompromising French character is made from white and black grape varieties of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, hand-picked exclusively in the vineyards of the Aÿ-Champagne wine region. Guillotine's collection features three extra-premium expressions.
Slowly distilled 5 times in a 100-year-old distillery in France to preserve the precious characteristics of the grapes, Guillotine Heritage Barrel Aged Vodka is an award-winning vodka, matured for 6-12 months in cognac and armagnac barrels, made from famous French Limousin oak. This rare process is responsible for the spirit’s exceptional warmth, roundness and sweetness as well as the distinct golden amber hue. It’s the only French vodka from the Champagne region, matured in oak barrels. Bottled at a well-rounded 90 proof in the Ile-de-France region, its intriguing smooth and clean character has garnered numerous awards, including the Double Gold Medal at the 2019 SIP Awards.
