STEPHANE TISSOT VIN JAUNE BARRELS
Soft, Light, Fruity, a Yellow Wine Whisky For more than 15 years, we regularly exchange our barrels with Stéphane Tissot, emblematic winemaker of the Jura. The wine, not rinsed, the fine lees and coarse lees still present, its barrels allow us to mark our distillates with all the power and elegance of the Savagnin.
Very easy to drink thanks to its very round texture, and its natural low degree (43%). Without flavors of rancio, without woody, this whiskey is fresh and deep at the same time; It combines at once the freshness of malt with the elegant bitterness of the Savagnin. Spicy, complex and gourmand, it is balanced and very persistent.

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.
