Time isn’t always friendly to spirits; even the greats fall victim to the aging process eventually. If left in wooden vessels far beyond the intended time, an otherwise promising beverage can too be ruined. However, when all the original elements work perfectly together (distillate, type of wood, climate of storage etc), the result over time is very special indeed. It is these kinds of spirits that The Last Drop team searches for high and low across the globe.
Enjoyed this feature? Then how about reading all about the Tawny Port that is older than the Titanic? Or, if you prefer a whisky then the esteemed Single Malt Glenrothes 1968 or The Last Drop's 1971 vintage blended scotch whisky may be more up your street!
