We distill, mature and bottle our Whisky / Whiskey in Alpiarça, Portugal, an extraordinarily uncommon provenance for Whisky.
Portugal has a long
tradition of making and aging wines and other spirits and is the birthplace of
some of the best casks in the world, in turn leading to endless possibilities
for traditional and bespoke coopering.
Our virgin casks casks are Portuguese coopered
by traditional methods using naturally air seasoned oak, from 24 to 36 months,
while typically our RARE PORTUGUESE CASKS previously contained Port, Madeira, Setubal, Moscatel De
Alexandria, Fernão Pires and Brandy,
to name a few, and are the backbone of the unique VENAKKI WHISKY expressions.
The Atlantic influence and warm tempered
climate throughout the year; of warm days and cool nights (daily thermal
variations ranging typically from 15ºC / 60ºF to 40ºC /105ºF drives our Whisky / Whiskey to extract from the casks all the goodness for which we’ve prepared
Bottled just at the right time, one by one
by hand, we also offer discerning customers, the possibility of PRIVATELY OWNED CASKS bespoke Pure Malt Whiskies at CASK STRENGTH and SINGLE CASK bottling.
