Additional information: Silène – French Whisky
This whisky – 100 percent French in origin – is made from organic malted barley grown in the Charente and distilled in traditional charentais stills. Originating from natural cared-for land, it reveals an exceptional purity and a rare character. Its name is derived from a butterfly (Brintesia circe) that lives in light woodland and bushy hills, and a plant (Silene vulgaris) from hedges and grasslands; also from Silenius, the god of drunkenness and the adoptive father of Bacchus, the god of wine.
Following the successful launch of organic DECROIX COGNAC and DECROIX GIN, French organic wine enthusiast, David Mimoun has created his own brand name – VIVANT.
VIVANT offers a range of outstanding spirits, all made from carefully selected and organic ingredients. From start to finish, all additives are strictly banned from our products so that our liquors truly reflect and respect the particular properties of the soils from which they originate. (Pesticide residue analyses are available for customers to consult on our website).
All of our ingredients are either sourced from organic farmers or specifically grown for VIVANT.
VIVANT considers its approach to be a driving force in the development of organic farming both in France and further afield.
