    Domaine des Hautes Glaces Vulson White Rhino Rye (700ml)

    FRANCE
    $105. 00 Bottle
    $1260.00 Dozen
    ABV: 40%
    Born from a partnership between the Domaine des Hautes Glaces distillery and Xavier Padovani, former global ambassador for Hendrick’s Gin and Monkey Shoulder whisky. The brand was launched in Summer 2014 with the label taking its name from Marcus Vulson de la Colombiere, the man who in 1616 built the 400 year old castle which houses the distillery.

    Run by Fred Revol, owner and master distiller, Domaines des Hautes Glaces is a farm-to-glass operation, growing, malting, brewing and distilling from its own 100% organically grown rye. Distillation takes place in a small copper pot still through which the spirit passes three times. The still is heated directly by a wood-burning fire, which is manually controlled. The entire approach is an attempt to harness the terroir of the region.

    Tasting note: Clear. Lifted new-make bouquet offers olive sour dough, whitepepper and sauerkraut-like notes. Light entry builds to a peppery, waxy, sour dough and sauerkraut profile; finish includes whitepepper, mineral plus hints of caraway and baked citrus in the fade. 40% Alc./Vol.
