One of the imperatives at Distillerie Bertrand is to give voice to the essence of the terroirs. Throughout this entire range the French terroirs play a special, unique melody.
Each color of the Cask Whiskies is an interpretation of the musical score, according to the barrel in which it was aged.
While the Whisky Cask Jaune is aged in a barrel once used for the idiosyncratic “Vin Jaune” (Yellow Wines) of the Jura region, the Cask Bleu develops its aromatic array in a barrel once used for the Rhône Valley wines and the Cask Vert brings Burgundy to Alsace. This meeting of wine and whisky creates remarkable, singular spirits.
The Cask couleur combine the best of the Alsatian terroir, water of exceptional quality, organic barley without hops that is lightly smoked and the finest terroirs of the French winemaking regions. Afterwards comes the work of interpretation by the composer and then time, time that stretches out slowly and patiently — these are what make perfectly mature Cask couleur whiskies.
Each whisky Cask couleur delicately imparts its memories, relating the barrel’s story.Production
With a minimum 7 years in the barrel, this singular blend of different ages continues to develop at a leisurely pace in order to attain the pinnacle of taste.Secret
Each barrel is meticulously chosen by Jean Metzger, retrieved in the original region the day it’s emptied of its wine then taken back to Alsace for use with our Cask whiskies.
