The Giraud family is a family of coopers from 1875, then Chai Masters from 1910 to 1990, from father to son, grandchildren ... for 4 generations!
In 1995, Philippe Giraud (5th generation) joins a group of Scottish whiskeys where he deals with marketing in Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2004, Philippe creates a wine and spirits distribution company.
In 2009, he decided to combine his knowledge of whiskey and family Charentais know-how to produce a high-end French whiskey and transmit the heritage and expertise of his family.
The aim is to offer a rich, complex and balanced whiskey, something that is a tribute to Alfred, the first Giraud to have been cellar master all his life, and the one whose name will adorn the label of the family whiskey.
