A beautiful looking whisky from France!
In ancient Welsh mythology, Amaethon is the god of wheat and agriculture. Why a French whisky has a name from Welsh mythology is unknown – but that’s part of this whisky’s charm!
The spirit is made using “Bread-quality” barley, from the country’s major farming region. Amaethon has been bottled by Spiritique, a French producers that already has a few other spirits under its belt.
The dram has been aged initially in first and second fill former Bourbon barrels, before a finish in old Cognac casks – selected especially for their softness and lack of tannins.
The result is a soft, velvet-like dram with notes of fresh malt and wheated bread, vanilla, orange peel, toasted nuts, orchard fruits, light oak, honey, liquorice and cinnamon spice.
A youthful dram that is not lacking in character. Bottled at 45% ABV for a touch more body.
