Yeast: A cultured yeast whose strain is 120 years old.
Distillation: Distilled twice in Charente copper stills.
Water: From the purest Charente springs, naturally filtered for centuries through the limestone layers in the soil of the region.
Ageing: Limousin oak barrels which had previously held Sauternes, Red Burgundy, and Sherry.
Tasting notes: With a deep amber color, BASTILLE 1789 Single Malt proves to be a soft, rich, and complex whisky. It presents complex notes of fruit, sweet spices, and leather, ending with a slightly peaty finish. It reveals layers of character brought about by the triple cask ageing.
