Nogle gange har man bare lov til at være heldig.

Vi har fået nogle sjældne 100 år gamle 500 liter Amontillado fade hjem fra Bodegas La Aurora, som ligger i Montilla-Moriles distriktet i Andalusien.

Dem fylder vi med vores 100 år gamles danske bygsort Imperial. Vi fylder 6 liter per andel og deler fadet i 80 andele i alt. Hver andel giver minimum 8 flasker færdig whisky, tappet på 50 cl flasker.

Vores erfaring er, at rigtigt gamle sherry fade trods den store volumen giver meget smag til whiskyen. Vores forventning er, at fadet er klar til aftapning efter 6-8 år.

Revived Danish heritage barley
Together with skilled breeders, we have brought the Danish heritage barley variety Imperial back to life after 100 years of hibernation in the Nordic gene bank. The variety tastes fantastic and gives a very oily distillate full of flavourful esters to our whisky. The 2022 harvest of Imperial has produced a fruity and slightly tart distillate with notes of orange-citrus, 'earthy' unripe pear, dusty grain and malt sweetness.
Maturing on bourbon casks

The Imperial barley is filled into a couple of 120 litres 'first fill' bourbon casks. Over 5 years, we expect the casks to give lots of vanilla and light honey sweetness balanced by some tannins from the oak. The sweetness of the casks and the complexity of the distillate we expect will produce a partly classic bourbon cask aged whisky, but with a very characterful touch from the Imperial barley.
