Rye Whiskey, France / Rhone-alpes, 70cl, Ref: 57127
Ampelos is a single malt from Climat Andrieu. This whisky was distilled in August 2013 and bottled in September 2019.
- Nose : Gourmand, du pain d’épice, du miel, de la cannelle, de la noix de muscade. Un nez qui conserve une belle tension portée par des notes citronnées, aériennes, des fleurs blanches et de thé des Alpes.
- Palate : Le beurre et les épices tapissent onctueusement le palais sur lequel s’égrainent les notes maltées et chocolatées. Puis montent et se concentrent des effluves compotées, de pruneau et de pâtisserie sur une table en noyer.
- Overall : La dégustation se termine sur des notes plus fraîches, d’amande et de propolis.
- 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.
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.
