Comtesse du Barry has formed with Edradour, the smallest distillery in Scotland, to bring you a selection of whiskies aged in Sauternes casks.
The Edradour distillery is renowned for the singular character of its single malt which it exports worldwide. The owner Andrew Symington has always striven to create special original methods of ageing his whisky (in Burgundy, Chardonnay, Chateauneuf du Pape, Madeira, Muscatel, Port, Sassicaia, Tokay etc ) his new expressions have brought the slightly old fashioned image of his whisky right up to date. Under the expert guidance of former Laphroaig manager Iain Henderson, Edradour has been distilling the peaty single malt named Ballechin since 2002. Ballechin takes its name from an old local distillery.
