Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : polished gold.
  • Nose : Firm and refined. Expresses firstly notes of truffle, white flowers and spices, then it takes us right to the heart of a field of barley where malt goes hand-in-hand with white-fleshed, slightly candied fruit.
  • Palate : deep and silky. Notes of marzipan, citrus fruit and exotic fruit; the pastry texture is a mixture of aromatic plants and fresh fig.
  • Overall : ample and mellow. The malted barley has a balsamic undertone. Expressive, it lingers on to dark chocolate, mint and camphor. The retro-nasal olfaction is rooty and herbaceous. The bottom of the glass tastes of apricot tart.
The brand

The brand

When the Domaine des Hautes Glaces launched its first eau de vie on the French market in 2011 (a young single malt aged for barely a year), it immediately stood out from other producers: its whisky is distilled entirely from barley grown organically in the exceptional local microclimate. Relying on expertise, techniques and tools (two Charentais stills) from Cognac, and on organic agriculture, Jérémy and Fred have created a unique, very French version of Scotland’s most famous spirit. Their approach is to separate their production into five areas (Andrieu, Le Serre, Gabert, Les Versannes and Vulson) where they grow several varieties of grain (barley for the whisky and rye for the vodka); the Domaine des Hautes Glaces has managed to create a portfolio of spirits with a richness and diversity that does not exist any where else in France. This enables connoisseurs to follow the evolution of flavours and aromas very closely, while remaining faithful to a completely organic approach.

The distillery

Set up in a 17th century castle on a plateau at an altitude of 900 metres to the south of Grenoble, Domaine des Hautes Glaces is still in its early days. And yet it has already made an impression on whisky connoisseurs. Managed by two friends, Jérémy Bricka and Frédéric Revol, the first an agronomist, the second an oenologist, this small company produces various spirits, distilled on site from barley and rye bases, the grain having been grown organically on the distinctive terroirs that surround the property. The result is a remarkable expression of these terroirs.
