Authentic Artisan Wines & Spirits
Single Malt Whisky ~ Pale Single Single ~ 45% ~ 700mL
Different whisky than Michel Couvreur uses to purpose, Sherry influence being more discret and Fino Sherry casks make whiskies iodine and floral.
Pale colour because the nature and impregnations of casks. Nervous, fruity and slightly iodised, but free from wood astrengency. Subtle and long in the mouth. Timid, it needs time to open, its delicate elegance has to be relished. An appearance of fragility behind a fabulous length.

Michel Couvreur had a very personal, and truly revolutionary vision of what whisky should be: more than terroir, more than the distiller’s touch, it was the maturing in oak casks that truly helped the grain spirit become whisky. From 1978 on, having settled in the French region of Burgundy, he decided to make it his life’s work and to dedicate his research to a process which he once compared to cross-fertilisation.
Michel Couvreur passed away in 2013; his son-in-law Cyril Deschamps and his cellar master Jean-Arnaud Frantzen, with the invaluable help of Michel’s devoted wife Marthe and his daughter Alexandra, follow to the letter the philosophy and the motto of the house: Virtute et Opera.
