Below is the menu for the evening…
Ohishi Single Sherry Cask Whisky distilled from rice and is matured fully in fresh Sherry Casks. Each cask is hand selected by the master distiller Oishi-san and represents the beauty of light and dark juxtaposition that is the soft silky texture of rice whisky synchronized with the massive sherry influence of the cask. Big raisins, figs, and oak spice cover the nose and palate. Like sherry cask scotch whisky, but uniquely its own in mouth feel and aroma.
Ex-red wine casks that were sourced from Israel’s finest wineries were picked for this part of the Elements trilogy. The Mediterranean’s climate, variety of soil types, hot sunny days and cool nights bring a spicy and unique flavor to Israeli wine – and in turn, our casks. The wine casks used in the Elements Red Wine are a celebration of local terroir, curating a floral single malt with notes of raisins.
Gouden Carolus Single Malt is a refined whisky distilled from the mash of Gouden Carolus Tripel beer. Originally brewed for the Knights of the Golden Fleece in 1491, this pleasant golden blond beer is preferred by all who love heavier, somewhat seasoned, full-bodied, and refreshing beer. A first for Belgium are the hand hammered, copper pot stills, in which the pure mash is distilled. The result is a pure and clear distillate. The ensuing aging in First Fill Bourbon casks followed by a further aging in ‘Anker’ casks (oak casks reworked by the cooper according to Het Anker’s own specifications) results in a refined whisky with a rich and balanced taste. The subtle fruit aromas are delightfully enhanced by hints of wood and vanilla.
Penderyn is made at the Penderyn Distillery which is located on the southern reaches of the Brecon Beacons.The whisky is distilled in a specially-commissioned unique whisky still producing a flavourful spirit at 92% abv which is married with fresh spring water drawn from directly beneath the distillery.. Pure water source is replenished by rain water that flows through the soil and filters through to near-surface rocks within the Brecon Beacons National Park.
The spirit is then matured in ex-bourbon barrels and finished in rare Madeira barriques to produce our house-style Madeira-finish whisky that, even at 46% ABV, is light and fresh in style.93 Point, 2021 ULTIMATE SPIRITS CHALLENGE
