Maison Lineti, pioneering Vintage Whisky

An atelier for Vintage Whisky

Maison Lineti was conceived by impassioned entrepreneurs from the world of Fine Wine. Together, they set out to craft French single malt whiskies with the same exceptional standards and savoir-faire as the most iconic Grands Crus.

The distillery features state-of-the-art equipment that subtly combines innovation and tradition. Nothing is left to chance to preserve the excellence of our single malts. A world first in whisky, Maison Lineti has chosen seven egg-shaped concrete vessels, each with a capacity of 70 hectolitres, for the mash fermentation – a nod towards the vats used in some of the most prestigious Bordeaux estates.

A unique atelier-distillery for a prestigious French Vintage Whisky

Located in Les Artigues de Lussac, in the heart of the Greater Saint-Émilion Area in the Gironde department, the distillery of Vintage Whisky is a unique creative atelier, where single malts are distilled with passion. With sincerity and authenticity, our distillery tells a new story based upon our four creative values: Dream, Experiment, Craft and Inspire.

The atmosphere here is peaceful. First of all, connoisseurs will recognise subtle cereal aromas. The malted barley grains, harvested with care by the producers of our French terroir, are the key ingredients behind the finesse of our wash. The ovoid curves of our vats will then allow the aromas to reveal themselves and blossom. Finally, our copper-coloured pot stills warm the heart as they release the precious new make spirit. Here, from the barley to the distillate, each key step in the creation of our vintage single malts is cherished.

A whisky inspired by the Grands Crus

Maison Lineti draws inspiration from the concept of vintage that is fundamental to Fine Wine, reinventing it for the world of whisky. For us, Vintage variation is intentional, not imposed by nature. Each year, human creativity and aspiration are our weather and climate.

Each Vintage is a single year of creation, bottled and released in 5 Chapters: after 3, 5, 8, 10 and 12 years of barrel maturation. Like different chapters in a human lifespan, the character of our whisky grows and evolves through time but the heart remains constant.

The art of maturation

Like fine wine and gastronomy, Maison Lineti’s single malt is carefully crafted. It is matured in a cellar sensitive to climatic variations. The distillates undergo a slow maturation process throughout the years before being bottled. Each degree of alcohol is kept in its wooden vessel to age carefully for years on end. The angel’s share, as wine and spirits lovers know it, evaporates every year.

In contrast to other distilleries of whisky, in our maturation cellar the barrels are spread across seven levels on a steel structure. This unique system makes it easier for the master distiller to handle the barrels independently during the blending process.
