Michel Couvreur is one of the last artisan houses to select its own sherry “butts” in Andalusia. “Distilled in Scotland on the 16th of June 1998. Aged 25 years in old Pedro Ximenez cask in Burgundy. Bottled at natural strenght on the 16th of June 2023. Very classic Michel Couvreur range: dark amber robe, ruby reflections. Intense silky texture. Fascinating tropical-style sensuality. A hint of vanilla, almond and sherry. Apparently bottomless power. Very long in the mouth. To be relished in silence.

Michel Couvreur whisky’s style is acquired by years of long contact with Sherry or other different impregnated wine casks. Now to what makes them so unique: the cellars. Tucked away in a little village, Bouze-lès- Beaune, halfway between Andalusia and Scotland, they look like a cave which is 15 metres deep with some 150 metres of galleries dug in limestone but giving humidity, silence, calm and depth. A choice of cask and a delicate dance of maturation between dry and damp places, Michel Couvreur whiskies are incredibly

flavourful, intense and soft all at the same time. Style and nobility are acquired following many years of ageing.

What makes Michel Couvreur’s Whiskies so special is not the distilled base product but the choice of barrels they have been selecting. They keep a very special attention to the choice of barrel, spending a lot of time and money looking for the most unique barrels down all over Europe.

Aroma: Tropical notes of very ripe exotic fruit and flowers evokes a natural sweetness.

Taste: Sherry, vanilla, almonds.

Finish: Very long and rich finish.
