56 litres "Quartauts" from Burgundy origin
Those 56 litres casks are specially made for us by our cooperage, from staves of French "barriques" having previously held a white wine from Burgundy

The limited capacity of the 56 litres "Quartauts" provides a very favourable ratio of wood surface/volume. This ratio, combined with the intrinsic quality of the casks themselves and with the geographical situation of the distillery's bonded warehouse, allows for a high quality of maturation within a relatively limited period of time.

As a matter of fact, Glann ar Mor distillery and its warehouses are just facing the sea and enjoy a mild and maritime oceanic climate, recognized as being the most favourable one for ageing whisky casks

Once it will have completed its ageing period in the distillery's warehouse, you will be able to collect your cask and bottle it yourself or to have it bottled by the bottler of your choice. We may be able then to offer the option of having your cask bottled by the distillery for you (see FAQ - § 7 "Bottling").

Apart from the specificities of the cask and of the climatic environment of the warehouse, the character of the whisky is naturally also strongly influenced by the quality of the distillation, which represents the first step of its long making process.
