Single Malt Whisky ~ VJ Maturation ~ 10 y.o. 2021 ~ 500mL
The 22nd June 2021, we blended differents casks, all of them coming from Domaine Stephane Tissot. Always freshly filled, they were left either in the humid cave or in the dry cellar. Whiskies matured in Les Bruyères casks are light and elegant when whiskies matured in La Mailloche are spicy with nuts savors: we have blended all together.
10 years in wood have given a lot of complexity and spicy and our share angels management makes it easy to drink, reaching a natural low alcohol strength. All these casks exchange are very welcome, we are beginning a new maturation in "La Vie est Belge" cask, we supposed Michel Couvreur would have appreciated.
3000 bottles are produced with a part of 700ml bottles for US market.

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.
