Lecarré : The Sharp
and Stylish Sassy Spirits
Lecarré is a tribute to a nostalgic look back at “Art deco” and “Roaring Twenties” lifestyle. Its name has been inspired from a cocktail created in New Orleans, in the French quarter known as « Vieux Carré ».
Brandy distillation and ageing
Our raw material is grape. We carefully select acid white grape varieties to produce delicate wines for distillation.
The distillation process is made with two different kind of pot stills : traditional double-distillation copper pot still and Coffey column still. Double distilling process in copper stills brings smoothness and fruitiness as coffey still brings spiciness and complexity. This distillation process is a key component to reveal Lecarré signature and identity.
Following the distillation, Lecarré fresh distillates are transferred into French oak barrels to rest and mature slowly in our humid cellars turning them into elegant and mature spirits that will be harmoniously blended by the cellar master. The ageing process is essential to develop aromas, colors and complexity of the future blend.
