LE CHÂTEAU DU BARROUX, A HERITAGE TO BE SHARED… AND PRESERVED

In 2020, we decided to make this castle the home of our personal and professional projects. We imagined how to develop it and integrate it with our passions: heritage and conviviality.
We wanted to o er everyone the opportunity to discover the history of the place by opening it to the public. In addition, we created a craft whisky distillery, symbol of sharing, conviviality and spirituality.

For the distillery to work, it needs raw material to begin with, luckily there is plenty in Provence! We always had a strong bond to nature and it is a great source of inspiration. Fanny grew up surrounded by vines and re-discovered her love of terroir through the creation of our whisky. Our whisky is the perfect representation of terroir as it is made with a local cereal: the einkorn.

We decided to develop our whisky with this local cereal, in partnership with the union “Petit Épeautre de Haute Provence” to guarantee the traceability of the raw material and taste quality of the end product. This aim is also to encourage the production of the einkorn allowing to develop poor soils while preserving biodiversity.

OUR VALUES: PROTECT NATURE AND PROMOTE LOCALITY

By tasting our whisky, you contribute to the preservation of 8 square meters of a healthy soil. Why? Because we only use products growing following the principles of organic farming. Indeed, the farms that grow our products work in the most natural way possible, without pesticides for example. In addition, we source our cereal in a radius of 50 kilometres around the distillery,
following the specifications of thePetit Épeautre de Haute Provence Protected Geographic Indication..
