The last bottle of Michel Couvreur’s first legacy
Bere Barley practically extinct since the early 19th century, Michel Couvreur is the pioneer to start using the ancient barley to express malt in its raw purity. Entirely crafted by Michel M.A. Couvreur, he malted and distilled obtaining a product similar to malts of the times of Queen Victoria. Produced in extremely limited quantities, this is the whisky that’s completely different from any current whiskey.

About the producer
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.
