Description

Sein voller Körper und sein komplexer, langer Nachhall machen diesen Piekfeinen Single Malt zu einem ganz besonderen Whisky-Genuss. Hergestellt aus regionalem Gerstenmalz, ganz frei von rauchigen Noten, wird er in unserer Brennerei nach dem Pot-Still-Verfahren auf kleinen Kupferbrennlasen doppelt destilliert. Nach seiner Reifung in unterschiedlichen Fässern kommen zum Finishing Portweinfässer aus Portugal zum Einsatz.

Eine besondere Rarität ist unser 8-Jähriger Van Loon - Portwine Finish. Er ist eine Single Cask-Abfüllung besonderer Güte.

Sensory description
  • In the nose, this single malt impresses with aromas of plums and dark chocolate, a subtle marzipan note, and a hint of oak and herbs. On the palate, notes of nuts, plum, sour cherry, and port wine can be tasted - soft and round with a slightly caramelized sweetness. The finish is warm, long, and fruity.
Production
With special pure yeast, the sweet wort made from regional barley malt is fermented under oxygen exclusion and acid protection, and double distilled. This elaborate, double distillation in small copper stills and the careful separation of the "heart" preserves the flavors and leads to a natural mildness. The freshly distilled barley brandy is aged for at least five years before being bottled. The maturation takes place in first-fill bourbon barrels and red wine barriques from German winemakers. The barrel contents are blended and transferred to port wine barrels for finishing no earlier than three years. Only water is used to dilute the whisky for bottling. Bremen's drinking water is of excellent quality. No flavorings or sugars are added, and it is not diluted or blended. Since flavor carriers such as esters, proteins, and fatty acids are also removed during filtration, it leads to a change in taste. To avoid this "distortion," we do not use cold filtration. Our whisky is therefore unchillfiltered or non-chill filtered. The filtration is pressureless and done through cellulose.
