Liquid gold! Michel Couvreur made whisky in Burgundy from 1978 until his passing in 2013. His vision was that whisky is more than terroir or the distiller’s touch; its essence forms from maturation in oak casks. Today, Michel’s family and cellar master Jean-Arnaud continue his legacy, working with different casks (including Jura Vin Jaune casks) as well as unusual materials like amphora and wine lees. There is no 'finish' at Couvreur – the whole maturation is done in beautiful casks.
‘Couvreur's Clearach’ is a single malt matured for 2-3 years in fresh sherry casks. Using a solera process, which blends matured whiskey with new whisky, each barrel contains up to 25 years of aging. This is a lively, youthful spirit with aromas of almonds and frangipane. Grassy freshness with a hint of honey and the texture of silk pyjamas. Hand-corked, hand-waxed, hand-labelled. Drink as an aperitif; or as anything.
