Homage to late Michel Couvreur’s love of details
More than an exceptional Single Cask, High Privacy is a fabulous homage to late Michel Couvreur. Sharing with Michel Couvreur’s every tasting details, each drop reminds us of his smile during tasting that says: we are on a good way. This emotionally charged Whiskey, distilled on July 23, 1998, already presented 20 years ago an exceptional character. After a long evolution in PX cream barrels, meticulously overseen for several years by the famous revolutionary and passionate himself, High Privacy today offers power and refinement, through a sublime peaty flavor, with notes of liquorice and peat bog. A balanced Single Cask, of an impressive aromatic richness, in a palate that knows how to remain suave.

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.
