This release named Sankt Claus, pays tribute to Saint Nicholas, patron over amongst others sailors and fishermen. With the winter storms just around the corner and as we see the waves whip up frisky foam around our island, we would like to send some thought and warmth to the ones sailing the seven seas and narrow straits bringing us delights from far away.
We have tested almost hundred casks to find the best whisky to bring the most joy and (de)light to the winter darkness. We wanted notes of dark ripe berries, nuances of clove and liquorice and a hint of smokiness imbedded with round vanilla notes. A generous heart cut at distillation gave the oak a lot of raw materials to work with for the creation of new scents and textures. The raw spirit was matured in French, air dried Allier oak, harvested in Moulins. The casks previously contained a wine of 100% Merlot, where the grapes was harvested by hand and macerated slowly over eight days.
The Swedish batch was sold out in record time, but there's still some bottles left on the Danish batch!
