Authentic Artisan Wines & Spirits
Cereals Spirit ~ Couvreur’s Clearach ~ 43 %
Be careful, it appears cloudy! It's normal, it's unfiltered and very Young. Typical to very young malts with almonds and frangipane (red jasmine) fragrance, nice grassy freshness with a slight touch of honey. Lively in the mouth, its maturation in wine casks, despite its young age, is revealing some silky elegance. Possessing young spirit’s intense and lively characteristics, it displays the flavours of first vinous impregnations. Clearach is generally the name given to the new make spirit, just from the still, before the minimum required 3 years of maturation in wood.

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.
