Harvey Farm

The Harvey family are the first artisans behind our spirits. Félix Harvey, pictured below, is a farmer by trade, but comes from a family of seafarers.

When he and his brothers were all still busy working full-time jobs, they shared a dream of taking the land they owned on Isle-aux-Coudres, and using it to grow grains of all kinds. Beginning with an initial 10 hectares, today they’re sowing and harvesting from fields spanning 150 hectares.

The particular location of the island makes for a microclimate that is unique from the rest of the region. The humidity of the river, the salty air, and the late-arriving seasons express themselves in a grain that is firm, thick and rich in iodine. It wasn’t long before we jumped at the opportunity to become part of their incredible project, a great challenge with a very simple objective: to produce spirits distilled entirely from the grains of Isle-aux-Coudres, with the island’s character evident in every drop.
