About Rozelieures Origin Collection French Single Malt Whisky
The Grallet-Dupic family has been producing cereal for 5 generations in the small village of Rozelieures in the Lorraine region of France. They have been distilling for over 150 years in the vicinity of an ancient volcano. Their whisky is entirely family-made, with the barley grown on the 300 hectares of fields beside the farm and the pure water naturally-filtered through volcanic rock.
The G. Rozelieures distillery was the first French distillery to produce single malt whisky using peated malts. It was years of research and tradition that brought the distillery to where it is today, malting, peating with French peat, brewing, fermenting, and double-distilling their aromatic expressions, then maturing the whisky in oak casks from local forests as well as used ones that previously contained wine and spirits from Kentucky, Xérès, Burgundy, the Rhône valley, and South-West of France.
The Rozelieures French Single Malt ― Origin Collection was the first creation of the range. Double-distilled using French barley, this expression is lightly peated with French peat to around 6ppm (phenols per million), before being matured in ex-sherry and cognac casks. It's bottled at 80 proof and has intense spicy, nutty, and cereal aromas with a long finish.
