Located in the east of France, bordering Switzerland, Jura is a gorgeously green region filled with lakes and valleys. Its heights are scattered with thickly forested mountains and alpine plains, where chamois and lynxes roam freely. Its vast plains have been home to vineyards for centuries, and Jura wines are unusual, delicious, and deeply distinctive of the region.
Keeping it in the neighbourhood
Everything that goes into producing Single Cask Vin de Paille 2006 is local: from the barley and distillation process, to the straw wine barrels used during the ageing process. Single Cask Vin de Paille 2006 is distilled from a homemade craft beer base, using an armagnac still in a tiny local distillery. Afterwards it’s aged for several years in barrels that formerly contained local straw wine.
The character of straw wine
Straw wine, or raisin wine, is a wine made from raisins that have been dried to concentrate their juice. This ancient process has been used to produce sweet French wines for centuries. When Single Cask Vin de Paille 2006 is aged, the wine barrels infuse it with the gorgeously liqueur-ish flavours and aromas of the straw wine that inhabited them previously.
The Brains Behind It
A modern-day prophet
Bruno Mangin has always been ahead of his time. He began as a brewer, starting his own craft brewery in 1994 when craft beers were a distant dream of the future. Likewise, he began making craft whiskies in 1999 when such a thing was basically unheard of in France. His whiskies are not an imitation of any other style, but are resolutely French, expressing all the character and personality of Bruno’s region.More on the Brand
