Respectively former Havana Club owner and Bordeaux merchant, Alexandre Sirech and Jean Moueix combined their talents in 2013 to initially produce the first 100% French whiskies. Their creations, under the label Les Bienheureux, have since been met with phenomenal and worldwide success, and are prized by lounge bars and connoisseurs alike, demonstrating in passing the added value brought by their blends and the quality of their original eaux-de-vie.
Encouraged by these initial successes, the duo was able to acquire its own distillery in Charente and thus create an innovative spirit based on rum and cognac. Daring to build a bridge between the Charente and the Caribbean, the alliance of the best of these two worlds, between the elegance of cognac and the charm of rum... A totally new blend, which shakes up the world of spirits!
