Most of you reading this, will have already ordered their special, exclusive box of the last Single Malt Scotch that will be finished on a iconic Kriek Cantillon cask. As you know by now the Scottish Whisky Association has changed their regulations in August 2019 regarding the casks that are allowed to be used in the maturation of Scotch. Kriek beer casks aren’t allowed anymore.
It has taken us more than 2 years to bring this bottling to an end. I still remember ordering casks samples in may 2018 for this 2nd Whisky à la Belge. It was a choice between Benrinnes, Linkwood and Glen Moray. The Glen Moray Single Malt came out strongest.
We planned on releasing this edition in januari 2020, but then in december 2019 we came into the SWA-maze with a lot of vague regulations and some new additional rules that seemed to be made as a reaction on the Arran à la Belge.
After a fierce discussion we came to an understanding and the SWA agreed on allowing us to release this last Kriek finished Scotch.
Now we are waiting for the transport from Scotland and the bottling of the Geuze Kriek Cantillon. The Kriek will probably be bottled in 2 weeks time, so I just went over to deliver the special labels for our Whisky à la Belge beer bottles.
So, we seem to be on track to achieve our new estimated release date in the beginning of December 2020. Right on time for the festivities, right?
Fancy a box of your own? Order here.
