ELEVATE YOUR STATUS

History

Vicomte (pronounced: vee-cont), a designation of French nobility, has endured throughout the centuries and has persevered into the modern day French ethos.

It was first used to distinguish those who were granted power and responsibility over a region by the King, however the political associations were replaced by heredity and general membership of the French aristocracy.

Scientists, Philosophers, Lawyers, Military Officers, Priests and Political Leaders are but a few of the professions that have been held by those that have been bestowed with the title of Vicomte. The essence of the sophistication and prowess exemplified by French noblemen that have held the title of Vicomte has been infused into this premium French Whisky. It is our pleasure to present Vicomte French Whisky as a delectable extension of the tradition of elegance, luxury and grace irrevocably and eternally tethered to French nobility and aristocracy.

As you sip and savor the refined flavors radiating through your senses, know that you have just elevated your status to the title of Vicomte.

How It's Made

Aged 8 years

ORGANIC NATURAL GRAIN 100% organic natural barley, grown and harvested from the Poitou-Charentes region of France.

DISTILLED twice in copper alembic stills. Also known as pot stills, copper alembic stills offer the advantage of producing a richer, more flavorful product than the stainless steel column stills seen in the larger commercial distilleries. A more traditional approach to Single Malt distilling that produces a distinctly complex product.

MATURED in French Oak Limousin Barrels before being aged 8 years in Cognac barrels to provide a balanced and unmatched flavor. French Oak comes from one of five forests, some of which were planted back in the Napoleonic Times. French Oak is typically more subtle and spicy offering textures of satin and silk. American Oak tends to be stronger in flavor tilted more toward a creamy finish. The difference gives VICOMTE a unique and approachable taste profile.

BOTTLED after maturing 8 Years and ready to offer the style, flair, and sophistication that can only come from the historic past of France.
