Solera process
STEP 1
Brian Kinsmvan hand-selects a combination of matured whisky aged in
Sherry (European Oak), Bourbon or California Red Wine casks


Sherry cask
creates vanilla + toffee flavours

Bourbon cask
gives oaky tannin + smokiness

California Red Wine cask
adds a fruity flavour + floral aroma
STEP 2

These selected whiskies are added to the

Solera Vats
which are
always kept at least half full
to allow individual flavours of different casks to marry
Step 3
There are
3
Solera Vats
are in operation in
Warehouse no.8
Warehouse no.8 was built
in the summer of
1953

These vats are well-observed daily by watchmen until final whisky comes out
