The region of Alsace is situated in north-eastern France on the Rhine River plain. It borders both Germany and Switzerland and has alternated between German and French control throughout its history. Today, this cultural mix is apparent - beautiful timber-framed German-style houses line the streets and rub up against typical French-style churches.
The French New Wave
There’s a new wave of French whiskies on the horizon - and Coup de Foudre is one of the stars of the show. Produced by the Lehmann distillery, renowned for their eaux-de-vie, Coup de Foudre is a single-malt whisky of exceptional quality - even the label of the bottle is printed with genuine gold leaf! Coup de Foudre is made from entirely locally sourced ingredients, and is French from the roots up.
A delicate aging process
Coup de Foudre is double-distilled in Charentes-style copper stills, and then aged. The aging process lasts 5 years, where the whisky rests in wooden barrels previously used to store cognac. The cognac-infused wood affects the flavours of the whisky as it matures, giving it a rich, mellow set of undertones. The final product is smooth, soft and exquisitely balanced.
The Brains Behind It
The Lehmann distillery is a family business. It is the oldest and most prestigious eau-de-vie distillery in the region and was originally founded in 1850 by Yves’s great-great-grandfather. The distillery has been passed down from father to son for 5 generations and is currently owned by Yves Lehmann. Today he produces a variety of spirits, including a line of whiskies that he first introduced in 2000.More on the Brand
