The unmistakable qualities of first-fill American oak sherry cask ageing are celebrated in this new limited edition release. Quercus Alba Distinction begins its voyage in the oak woodlands of North America before being shipped to Spain, where these casks are meticulously created over the period of six years in the 'sherry triangle'.
Before being built and toasted by expert coopers, the staves are let to air dry in the Mediterranean sun. Before the casks are transported to Tamdhu, the Oloroso sherry is seasoned. Our bright new-make spirit melds with the American Oak sherry barrel over time to produce rich fruity flavours and a beautiful natural amber colour.
