About Rozelieures Rare 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.
Like all their whisky, the Rozelieures Rare Collection French Single malt is crafted from 100% French barley from the fields surrounding the Rozelieures farm. Lightly peated at 6ppm (phenol parts million), this expression is matured in sherry, cognac, and Sauternes casks. The whisky is produced in very limited quantity due to the scarcity of the Sauternes casks and is bottled at 80 proof. It's fruity and smooth with dried fruit notes and just a touch of smokiness.
