Single Malt et Rye Whisky

A FAMILY HISTORY

Sébastien Castan a laissé de côté sa production d’eaux-de-vie pour se consacrer au Whisky. Le résultat est un liquide cuivré, avec des arômes d’épice, d’amande, de cacao et de noisette. La culture de la céréale, la brassage, la fermentation, la distillation et le vieillissement sont réalisés ici même à la Distillerie Castan. En 2018, 80 barriques sont produites par la Distillerie Castan. Depuis 2019, un projet d’agrandissement est en cours. D’ici 2020, la production devrait être triplée.

 our whiskies

L’histoire de la Distillerie Castan commence en 1941. A partir de cette date et pendant plusieurs années, la famille Castan promène un alambic ambulant dans tous les villages du Tarn et d’Aveyron. Gilbert à l’origine de cette activité, transmet son savoir-faire à son fils et à son petit fils Sébastien, actuel distillateur.

The still dates back over 3 generations of home distillers called in French « bouilleurs de cru ». Gilbert and his son were itinerant distillers, travelling from village to village to distill fruits for private clients. This method has now disappeared, which forced the third generation to rethink the trade, and to bank on an unusual drink in our latitudes, here in the Tarn : Whisky. En 2010.

Ce dernier décide de construire une distillerie de fruits et de Whisky en 2007. Le premier Whisky est distillé en février 2010. Première distillerie d’Occitanie, le Whiskies Vilanova sont des éditions limitées, aux caractéristiques uniques.
