Concealed in a dark cellar – away from curious eyes – the time has come to reveal the unseen universe of the Maison’s legacy and uncover the hidden features of some of the most exceptional eaux-de-vie. Waiting to be revealed, in demijohns created by the finest wickers, to seize the peak of their elegance. To capture the point of elegance of every one of these eaux-de-vie, the Master Blender goes beyond the conventional. A moment that is decisive, fleeting yet so fragile, and important for portraying character and tendency and predeterming the potential to indicate their apogee. Thus, each of the eaux-de-vie are able to offer everything that was hoped for in this quest for preservation. All chosen for their finesse and balance, a unique creation was therefore crafted by Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, the 8th generation of Fillioux Master Blenders.

In this blend, the elegance of age and refinement meet to create a subtle balance, composed of remarkable eaux-de-vie, expressions of the know-how and heritage. Illustrating the know-how passed on from generation to generation by each Master Blender, these rare eaux-de-vie are making this blend to be a legacy of past history. Following through on the historical continuity, the finest French artisans shrouded the demijohns in sturdy wicker and tattered, smooth leather, adding a certain allure to a craftsmanship never seen before. Vibrant colours and eye-catching compositions are handcrafted with great precision, transforming the demijohns into unique, custom made, time capsules, for a unique blend never to be replicated.

A vision that started with one person wanting to preserve a piece of the present for the future, making this moment in time truly a legacy of past history.
