Vicard Generation 7 Barrels

Barrels sorted by tannin potential

With the Vicard Generation 7 range, the group offers innovative solutions in our search for barrel uniformity and reproducibility. The molecular toasting process enabled the Vicard Group to make a huge step forward in the precision of our products. Yet there was still progress to made to perfectly control the variations found in the raw material. Research beginning in 2008, on the classification of staves according to their ellagitannin content, enabled us to reach our goal and launch the Vicard Generation 7 range.
