An atypical career path,


To make a gin attractive, you need a nose. A big nose. Like that of Henri IV in the engravings and paintings that adorn the castle of the small town of Nérac, sub-prefecture of Lot-et-Garonne. In its time, it hosted the Cour du Vert Galant, still synonymous today with good taste, gastronomy and celebration. The large nose is also a sensitivity to fragrances, sometimes subtle aromas, always harmonious.

It did not take more for Anne-Hélène Vialaneix to name her structure "Du Grand Nez", fruit of her history and her convictions.

Creator & distiller, 

“Born in a family mixing farmers and teachers, since my chilhood I wanted to understand the complex functionning of both humans and vegetals. After two years in medicin, and considerring phamaceutical too far from the heart of life, I decided to devote myself to the vegetal world.


I thus went to Montpelier to learn the physiology of vegetal, then to Paris in order to follow two engineering courses in parallel: Agronomy and Innovation, Quality of environment and Production of vegetal.


After my first professional experience as a Project Manager in North Africa and Middle East, I choosed to meet my husband in Portugal. I discovered there the infinite range of flavours that the gin provides, and which you can taste in many specialized bars as well as wedding and other festive events. The sead was sown, I knew it would grow soon !


When I came back to France, I took advantage of my second son birth to obtain the National Diploma of Oenology which allowed me to work in a “Côtes de Gascogne” wine domain where I could learn how to master the complexity of wine and spirit creation.

Thanks to this wide span of both theoretical and very practical experiments I decided to create my own family of artisanal, biological and eco-responsible gins. Du Grand Nez was created end of 2019 with the start of production of our first Attributs !”
