invergordon 1972

maison prunier 1940

The Roots N°2

We paired our Invergordon up with a very old and complex Cognac Grande Champagne from the renownded cognac house “Prunier”.

Distilled in 1940, this is liquid history in a bottle. This beauty spent 81 years inside its wooden house before being filled into a bottle, labeled by The Roots.

Bottled at natural cask strength of 55% and an exclusive edition of 42 bottles.

bellevue 1998

The Roots N°3

We wanted to show the diversity of our roots.

A very old single grain and an ancient cognac could easily be paired up with a well aged rum from a former French colony.

Bottled at 51,5% and aged for 24 years in a refill barrel that proudly yielded us 115 bottles.

OLD RHOSDHU 1993

The Roots N°5

Single malt whisky has always been my first love. It took some time but here it is, our first single malt scotch whisky as an independent bottler.

A rather old Old Rhosdhu from the Loch Lomond distillery.

Did you know that Old Rhosdhu isn’t produced anymore since 2000? This makes it even more special.

Bottled at 50,8% and aged for 29 years in a hogshead that proudly yielded us 223 bottles.

Foursquare 2008

The Roots N°6

Somewhere on a tropical Island, called Barbados, this rum – of a family owned distillery – was distilled and laid down for 8 years of tropical maturation before going to the EU for some more continental aging.

As a whisky-lover myself, this kind of rum is once again an eye-opener because of some very recognizable characteristics that will make you think of a very good bourbon whisky. Definitely a winner…

Geeky detail: ‘Someone spotted the cask number?’

Bottled at 57,1% and proudly yielded us 271 bottles.

HD 2012

The Roots N°7

What would life be without some funk?

The roots of this rum all begins in Trelawny, a stone’s throw from the Cockpit Country. Unfortunately we weren’t able to reveal and use the name of the distillery itself but enough hints and tips to find out yourself.

This HD is probably the most funky one we’ve bottled so far and you will only understand if you taste it.

Bottled at 58,3% and yielded us 229 bottles.

Ledaig 2007

The Roots N°8

On the Isle of Mull, over 15 years ago, this tremendous cask was filled with a spirit which is one of my all time favorite distilleries. 

 The balance between the hogshead and the spirit was perfect so we can present you the best of both worlds. There was no need to let this beauty mature any further.

Let’s be honest: ‘Who doesn’t love a good and dirty Ledaig?’  

Bottled at 50,4% and aged for 15 years in a hogshead that yielded us 136 bottles.

Glenrothes 1985

The Roots N°9

Where ancient souls dwell around the distillery, an ancient spirit stopped sharing with its angels after 37 years.

It took a lot of time for this liquid to develop to the state it is in today, so give this one some time to open up and develop.

Patience is the key to unlock beautiful fresh and fruity aromas, honey and pink grapefruit and some peach and beeswax.

This oldie from 1985 will bring peace to the restless.

Secret Highland 1978

The Roots N°10

In September 1978 there was a spirit dripping from a still somewhere in the Scottish Highlands before it was taken to a refill sherry butt, only to remain untouched for over 42 years.

A golden liquid that takes you back in time and fills the room with aromas of tropical fruits, beeswax, leather and tobacco leaves. A liquid time capsule.

Despite the fact that we can’t use the name of the distillery, we tried to be creative with our label and give you some crystal clear hints…
