May was a busy month for some of our distillery partners. Read on to find out what's been going downRead more
We're thrilled to announce the first Patagonian distillery to join our distinguished list of Official Distillery Partners! As of Monday June 13th, La Alazana are live on the platform.
A small number of their casks of 100% Patagonian new-make spirit casks are available for purchase - and with this in mind you can find a quick introduction to this fantastic family-run distillery below to tantalise your tastebuds!
The first farm to bottle single malt distillery in Argentina, La Alazana is run by the pioneering Serenelli family. Growing a range of barley varieties at the family-owned farm which they malt on site, they even occasionally craft casks using staves of local rare French Oak at their in-house cooperage. Double distillation of these barley varieties with spring water of unmatched purity from the Andes Mountains takes place in their locally designed and built copper pot stills, rendering a fine and elegant spirit, while the local microclimate of their valley location allows for a long and smooth maturation, all of which gives their whisky a unique Patagonian character.
