The distillery Michel Couvreur

Once a producer and merchant of Burgundian wines, Michel Couvreur set himself up in Scotland during the 1960s and took to seriously studying the processes of whisky making. In time, he decided to specialise in the selling of unfamiliar, artisanal whisky. He favoured maturation in sherry, porto and sometimes yellow wine barrels. But the particularity of his whisky is in the cellar found in Burgundy's Côte d'Or. The large choice of barrels and the moving of these between humid and dry spaces means that the whiskies are powerful with harmonious roundness. Since he passed away in 2013, Michel Couvreur has been replaced by his son Cyril Deschamps who has vowed to maintain the family philosophy ‘Virtute et Opera': Strength and Work.
