Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
13 Years Old
As with vineyards in Brandy from Burgundy, the water source is a fundamental factor in the profile for Scotch Whisky. Philippe sought to partner with a distillery that crafted a whisky that would blend well with his casks and came upon Tullibardine in the Highland area. The distillery started out as a brewery in the 15th century due to its revered water source from the Ochil Hills that takes 15 years to reach the final resting point. This pristine water, paired with the style of whisky (non-peated), seemed an ideal complement to Philippe’s vision. After many tastings, Philippe sent Marc barrels to Scotland to finish a particular blend of casks of a similar age. The whisky spends ten years maturing in a selection of Bourbon and Sherry casks, chosen by Philippe, and then spent an additional three years finishing in the Jacoulot Marc barrels.
After spending a total of thirteen years maturing in cask, the inaugural release of 325 bottles, from a single barrel, was bottled in June of 2017.
