About Nelcius Cabernet Sauvignon Cask Single Malt French WhiskyThe 400-hectare Laujac estate is located in the heart of the Médoc region of France. With its roots dating to Gallo-Roman times, the neoclassical Chateau was built in 1810. The estate's winemaking business thrived under the Cruse family for several generations until the beginning of the 20th century. After 2 world wars and several natural disasters, Bernard Cruse took over in 1957. With only 8 hectares of vines remaining, he took it upon himself to revive the vineyards and modernize the entire operation.
In 2012, 55 vintages later, his daughter Vanessa and his son-in-law René-Philippe Duboscq took over, continuing to invest in the vineyards, raising the quality, while respecting the environment. Today, René-Philippe carries on his family tradition both as a wine producer and horse breeder, as well as whisky maker. The Nelcius whisky brand is a tribute to his father's horse of the same name that won the Prix du Jockey Club in 1966.
Nelcius Single Malt French Whisky is 100% French, meaning that the barley is grown, malted, and distilled in France. The whisky is double-distilled through small Carle-style stills, ensuring the preservation of delicate flavors and intense aromas. Then, the spirit is matured in their own wine barrels. After 2 years of aging in French oak, this expression spends another year in casks that previously held AOC Médoc wines from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Bottled at 80 proof, the whisky is lively and balanced with vanilla, brown sugar, fruit, and Cabernet Sauvignon notes.
