Giraud ‘Black Head®’
The French House Giraud, which we represent exclusively in Greece, invented the revolutionary Black Head® barrel. Giraud’s secret formula is based on an advanced heat treatment process on the head of the barrels. The wood through this special treatment turns dark (black) in depth and gains a deep aroma. This creates a unique and complex flavor profile, quite different, compared to a common barrel. Quite simply, the breakthrough of Black Head® gives another dimension to the oak ripening of wines and spirits.
Giraud gives you the ability to customize barrels according to your needs. Using VS or XOV wood blends in your Black Head® barrels or for even more speciality by combining the ORIGIN series, you can achieve the ultimate combination of innovation and quality.
