He has since shared his passion in (2003) with partners with the same interest

 

Alex & Lysiane Delaloye, Thierry Faust & Johanna Pitteloud

 

Their ambition was not to produce a copy of a whiskey or light Scotch ,

But to make a Swiss Spirit based on traditional whisky making:

 

Barley

Spring Water

Slow distillation

Matured in Casks.

 

The spirit produced is not whiskey as it as every right  to be called  but as Swhisky  in respect to Switzerland.

 

The company thanks all professional Scotsman that have contributed to achieve this ambition

 

The SWHISKY is produced in the same way as whisky,

 

For Glen Vignettes  wort they  use a type of Scottish Pils from the Valaisanne Brewery, A member  of the Carlsberg Breweries company. The water source is from "The girl" Arbaz from near the Brewery at Valaisanne .

 

The wort it taken to the distillery in road tankers
